RE: [DFRI-listan] Introducing myself

Hej James!

I'm 39 years and living close to Fyrishov (the public bath house).
I'm working at Sentor (an IT Security firm) in Stockholm and step off the train at 18:50 every workday. So at 19:00 I could be at some pub/restaurant in the the Uppsala city core.

Perhaps someone else on the list is interested to join up?

Hej Elof,

Great to meet you digitally! I can read some swedish (my mom is Swedish and I took a course when I was an undergraduate,) though I have been translating emails. 

Where are you living in town and what's your schedule like? It'd be great to meet up for a beer.

Hi James!

I'm living in Uppsala, and at least one other member on the list do as well.
Sure we could meet up some day.

Unless you've already learned Swedish, I think you'll need to use Babelfish or simillar quite a lot since the DFRI list is in Swedish. :-)

Hej Alla,

I've been on the list for a short time and wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself. I recently moved to Sweden after working on Internet freedom / net neutrality in Washington, DC for a number of years at the New America Foundation's Open Technology Institute. More recently, more of my work has been trying to engage international human rights organizations to be move active on Internet issues, such as speaking out against SOPA. 

As of last Tuesday I am now based in Uppsala where I'm pursuing a Masters in Digital Media and Society. I'm also continuing to work with the Open Technology Institute as our Swedish based Fellow. As much as my class schedule allows I plan to travel around Sweden and it would be great to meet up in person, and if anyone here happens to be Uppsala based it'd be great to sit down for a beer.
