Pirates, me and Mozilla

Categories Community Management, Drumbeat, Mozilla, Mozilla in Bulgaria

This weekend from April 16 to 18 delegates of Pirate Parties from 22 countries gathered in Brussels to create the Pirate Parties International (PPI). The aim of the PPI is to strengthen the bonds between the national parties and coordinate the international cooperation of the pirate movement.

Pirate Parties International exists to help establish, to support and promote, and to maintain communication and co-operation between pirate parties around the world. Pirate Parties International is not a political or authoritative entity.

The two Co-Chairmen of the PPI board will be Gregory Engels from Germany and Jerry Weyer from Luxembourg. Nicolas Sahlqvist from Sweden was elected Treasurer and Joachim Mönch from Germany is the new Chief Administrative Officer of the PPI. The board is completed with Bogomil Shopov from Bulgaria, Jakub Michalek from the Czech Republic and Aleksander Blagojevic from Serbia.

Happiness
Why am I happy? There is a strong idea for Open Web and openness I am taking part of, called Mozilla and there is a political movement that stands for the same things. One of my first tasks will be to introduce the Mozilla Drumbeat idea to the PPI Board and to find a way to participate.

I think both ideas – OpenWeb and Pirate Principles are the future of Web.

Arrr !

Founding members of the PPI were Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Kazakhstan, Luxembourg, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, The Netherlands and United Kingdom.
