Currently

I co-founded Dataskydd.net with Amelia Andersdotter. It’s a Swedish NGO working to promote data protection and privacy. My main project at the moment is Webbkoll, an online tool to analyze websites with regards to certain privacy-related aspects.

I also do all the technical stuff for Världsbiblioteket, a small library in Stockholm, Sweden focused on non-Western literature. Världslitteratur.se is one of our websites. We were one of the first libraries in Sweden to switch to the free and open source library system Koha.

Photography

minorshadows.net has been my irregularly updated photo journal of sorts since 2008. It's powered by 1600pr.sh, a minimalist static photoblog generator I wrote.

I spent 2005–2006 studying photography at Kulturama in Stockholm, ran a darkroom with some friends for several years, and exhibited a couple of times.

For a while I took a whole lot of photos at gigs, and from 2005 I uploaded some of them to Wikimedia Commons, setting them free. Many of them have been in active use on Wikipedia for 10+ years now (e.g., Andrew Bird, Sonic Youth, Arcade Fire).
