Done

What I’ve done recently (in the past ~3 years)

  • Run my own web development and online marketing company since 2007
  • Worked on the Sovereign Man project for a few years as marketer and COO, defying nation states and being part of generating millions of dollars in revenue.
  • Launched Sweden’s first “viral site” Hyllat.se modeled after Upworthy. I started it as an experiment to see if the same concept would work in Sweden and within two weeks (11 days to be exact) I had made it into a top 5 blog in Sweden, and one week later it was the biggest blog in Sweden and a top 20 website with 1.5 million visitors per week. The most shared article had been liked and shared over 120,000 times (which was likely a record in Sweden). I’ve since sold Hyllat to one of the biggest swedish competitors to focus on other projects.
  • Earned my Permaculture Design Certificate in 2013 through one of Geoff Lawton‘s courses
  • Launched the Radio Mises podcast in November 2013 for the non-profit research and educational center Ludwig von Mises Institute Sweden. I did everything from the podcast graphics and technical setup and still do ongoing audio post production and feed syndication.
  • Published the swedish translations of the following books (as free ebooks) through Ludwig von Mises Intitute Sweden:
  • Helped translate the following open source apps and software into swedish:
    • The Tor Project software and documentation, where Tor is “a free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis”;
    • Cryptocat, an easy to use web app that encrypts your conversations (although still in experimental stage);
    • RedPhone, an Android app for encrypted phone calls;
    • TextSecure, an Android app for encrypted text messaging;
    • ChatSecure, an iOS app for encrypted chat and instant messaging;
    • Orbot, an application that allows mobile phone users to access the web, instant messaging and email without being monitored or blocked by their mobile internet service provider;
    • Orweb, an Onion Routing Web Browser for use with Orbot;
    • ChatSecure(formerly Gibberbot), encrypted chat for Android;
    • HTTPS Everywhere, a Firefox and Chrome extension “that encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure.”;
    • Ostel, a tool for having end-to-end encrypted phone calls;
    • PRISM Break, an open source website featuring open source alternatives to proprietary software, so you can opt-out of PRISM, the NSA’s global data surveillance program.
    • Bitcoin-QT and the Bitcoin Wallet for Android.
  • Read 63 books in 2012 (and 52 books in 2013)
  • Graduated from university in 2012 with a Master of Science in Business and Economics.
