Some previous fun

Around 2002-2008 I was active in the change-through-participation art zine/think tank/activist group Interacting Arts and helped make and publish Interacting Arts Magazine.

RjDj creates mind twisting hearing sensations by weaving your environment into music, using the sensors on your music player. I worked for RjDj in London from Dec 2008 to April 2010.

While in London, I lived and tinkered in the Shoreditch Hacker House.

In 2007 I produced the game part of Interactive Emmy Award winning project The Truth About Marika.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer and Systems Science from Stockholm University.

Our crowd sourced electric motorcycle race team Morris Motorcycles is about to race in TTXGP

When Morris approached me last fall about being part of a crazy project to start a race team in the newly founded racing series for electrical motorcycles, I wasn’t sure what to think. But I knew Morris had the right amount of excellent crazy to pull it off, so even if I was very busy with my job in London, I said yes. A while later I represented Morris Motorcycles at the London launch of the new Mavizen electrical race cycle model, the Mavizen II, at Bloomberg. Some people there looked at me like I was crazy, and I’m sure plenty of people along the way have suspected Morris of being some lunatic when he calls out of nowhere, with no racing history and no company and no money. Yet.

And now, 6 months later, the team has over 160 members who either paid or lent 1000 SEK to the effort, and a number of sponsors that support the team.

Pro rally and race driver Annie Seel is racing for us.

And this weekend, by the love and magic of the interwebz and heroic efforts by the team and support from Mavizen who are lending us their development bike for this first race, we participate in the first UK race in TTXGP.

Our race number is 61, and here’s my Icelandic greeting to the team today. I wish I could be there. Any result is a massive victory for this project.
