About this blog…

I am employed by Netnod as head of engineering, research and development and am among other things chair of the Security and Stability Advisory Committee at ICANN. You can find CV and photos of me at this page.

As I wear so many hats, I find it being necessary to somewhere express my personal view on things. This is the location where that happens. Postings on this blog, or at Facebook, Twitter etc, falls under this policy.

The views expressed on this post are mine and do not necessarily reflect the views of Netnod or any other of the organisations I have connections to.

Regler för bredbandsstöd?

Jag har som många vet kämpat ganska mycket för att stöd ska utgå för utbyggnad av passiv infrastruktur, men samtidigt för att denna passiva infrastruktur skall vara tillgänglig på lika villkor för alla. Senaste veckorna har jag fått en del direkta frågor om vad som gäller, och det ledde till att jag grävde lite mer […]

Circuits, clouds, communication on Internet

I wrote some time ago a paper together with my friend Gordon Lennox. Many people ask for it, and I have to send it over to the ones asking, one by one. For some reason I do not understand I seem to not have put the document here on the web, or at least I […]

It is payback time! – Government of Sweden on Internet Governance

Today is a wonderful day for us working with Internet Governance that do believe in an Open Internet and multi stakeholder model for its governance.

FTTH Council do have its yearly meeting 2014 in Stockholm, Sweden, and there the IT Minister, Anna-Karin Hatt, made an opening speech that was among the strongest I have heard […]

My checklist for data collection mechanisms

The discussions about data collection and reuse is blooming after the incidents last couple of weeks. Of course, same things has happened now and then in Sweden since 2008 (I think it was) when we in Sweden started to get some discussions nationally on privacy, wiretap etc — related to Internet.

Regeringen skall inte välja DAB!

Diskussionen om DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) har kommit igång igen. En diskussion om ett system som är ett kvartssekel gammal. Som används av en handfull länder. Som redan kastats ut ur Finland och Frankrike. Som tvingar alla i Sverige köpa nya radioapparater där bara den kostnaden är några miljarder kronor. Och vad som är allra […]

Why COM(2012) 238/2 is not a good proposal

I and many with me have serious issues with Proposal for a REGULATION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market’ COM(2012) 238/2, and no, it is not only the very long name of the proposal, but that the way it tries […]

Presentations from the previous millennium

I have been asked, specifically lately(!) to re-publish presentations I have had on naming, searching, finding and such things. Yes, I was working quite a lot with those things in the 1990’s. At the KTH in Stockholm, at Bunyip in Montréal and then at Tele2 in Stockholm.

Some of the base ideas that you can […]

Affärsmodeller för fibernät – KO eller inte KO?

Jag förstår att Jon Karlung på gårdagens Telekom hänvisade till ett mail jag skickat till honom vilket i sin tur triggades av den nyhet som Telekomnyheterna släppte igår 14:e februari “Så ska Bahnhof och Bredband2 ta död på KO-marknaden“.

Ja, jag är glad att denna fråga ställs. Men jag vill förtydliga varför jag ser denna […]

Internationell diplomati

Jag var del av den svenska delegationen till Internationella Teleunionens möte WCIT i Dubai december 2012. Mötet slutade utan att man var överens om den slutgiltiga texten. Många länder skrev på, men EU, USA, Australien m.fl. valde att lämna mötet utan att skriva under det föreslagna fördraget. Detta beskrivs dock mer på andra ställen, och […]
