[Tumblr.com is coughing up blood, so I’ll resume my notes in a separate post. (Too many pictures!)]
I’m intrigued by the phone-book sized volumes of Mattias Elftorp, who’s not only created two tomes of “Piracy Is Liberation”; he’s actually *torrented* them to walk his talk. We talk on corporatization, brain jacks, cyberpunk nostalgia and hype around the ‘Pirate Party’.
(I’m reminded of the quote I’d seen walking downstairs in the Kulturhuset: Reading rebels against the managed world of information & the chaotic world of data. Reading is meaning. Jeanette Weinterson, 2011. It doesn’t matter if you’re a programmer, a punk or a librarian, there are tools available for you to avoid being steered into someone else’s narrative.)
For a taste, check out Mattias’ collection of stories, ‘A Subtle Fuck You’.
Hey, there’s a table full of Finns! (I’m part Finn though you’d never know it.) They’ve got all kinds of goodies to share, including a children’s anthology. I really enjoy seeing alternative and counterculture folks look to strengthen the next generation. (What, you’re going to leave it to Disney?)
Ellen Greider's heartfelt 'Konversationer' and 'flyttfaglar'.
Fanzine Mot Rasism: heck yeah.
Den Hudlosa Flickan - by multimedia marvel Kristin Eklund.
I wrap up the day with a huge stack of comics. And draw one of my own, with an assist from the Festival staff. http://QuickDraw.me

If you are in the Greensboro area of North Carolina, head to Parts Unknown and pick up a copy of the first issue of "DESTROY ALL (fill in blank)," my mini-zine featuring comics, graphic design and more!
