Finally on my way to Calle and a dinner w/ old KTH chums. If they followed me on Twitter they could track me
man I hate being late, even if I’ve said in advance I’ll be. I think it’s a reaction to my dad’s eternal time-optimism
On my way from #awesome dinner with Calle and Anna and (parts of) the old TTTU gang. Great to touch base again!

Peter Wolodarski tar strid mot fildelning och mot Google. Nån annan som känner han inte tillhör framtiden?
