Gregory Engels, Germany

Names and nicks Gregory Engels (Dichter)
member of
pirate party
German Pirate Party
prefered position ¡El Presidente!
education and
current job
study of physics and computer science, now entrepreneur
language(s) Russian, German, English
currently living in Offenbach am Main, Hesse, Germany
motivation and
political background
Before entering the Pirate Party I never took a very active role in politics (besides being at a couple of demonstrations and also being elected as a student representative at the university (independent list)). I joined the Pirates because I found people there who are fighting for the principles that I support at heart and I sensed that here I could make a difference. I was born in the former USSR, a corrupt totalitarian state that no longer exists. But some of the recent developments in the world are aimed at destructing the personal freedom of everyone. And this is what calls me into action - to oppose such efforts and to contribute to a world where freedom will prevail. And since Pirates are a global movement and the problems we are facing are on a global level, it is the most logical step for me to assist the movement at the global level. Currently I am the leader of the Statutes Task Force of the PPI and the appointed international coordinator from the German Pirate Party.
involvement in
other organizations
I am member of different professionals organizations and user groups, like the international Penumbra Group, DNUG, ILUG, UKLUG
goals for 2010 The goal is to strengthen and build support for the international pirate movement - including giving kick-start to new pirate parties, and preparing a big international pirate conference. On the personal and more local side - to ensure that the Pirate Party of Hesse participates in the "foreigners elections" in November.

currently living in Living in Georgia, US
motivation and
political background
Getting the whole thing to work well, smoothly. Also, as an EU citizen living outside the EU, i can at the same time appreciate the European position, while not letting it dominate (a potential problem, given the 'concentration' of European parties, leaving the rest of us as 'second class', and ignored by a euro-centric board) Politically, I worked a few campaigns in the UK, before moving to the US. In the US, worked on some skits with Jay Leno over the 2000 Presidential Election, and worked on a state house campaign in 2004. I helped reform the US party after it all but disintegrated in 2007 (I'm one of the two that signed the party Constitution), and i was the first to be nominally in charge of PPI, where my focus was equal parts establishing new parties, and assisting existing parties as and when they needed it, even if only to give party leaders someone to vent to.
involvement in
other organizations
Work with news site TorrentFreak, and do support for bittorrent clients.
goals for 2010 Assisting the UK party with their General Election work as needed. Finishing my book on P2P over the last 10 years. Managing my stress better so I can take the demands of a front-line officers position again (the reason I stepped down as PPI head). Getting communications between parties working at their optimum, ensuring the free-flow of data and maximal collaborative efficiency.

Aleksandar Blagojevic, Serbia

Names and nicks Aleksandar Blagojevic, blaeks
member of
pirate party
PPSR Pirate Party Serbia (founder January 2008),
prefered position PPI Ideology Leader
education and
current job
I am a professional conditioning trainer and IT poweruser. Graduated in sport sciences and physical education.
language(s) My native language is Serbian and I am advanced English.
currently living in Living in Belgrade, Serbia.
motivation and
political background
I came from the country with uncensored and free Internet, with the school system wish empowers its students to be pirates and copy almost everything they need in order to learn and prosper in their studies. I felt great independence and freedom while achieving most of my goals. Having that in my mind and by my heart, I dare to apply for named position in PPI. My superpower is my ability to perceive various aspects of social layers, practically most diverse and opposite values collided in people around me. The idea is to keep the PP movement pure and open. Pirate thinking is embodied practically in every modern human, I call this way "a constant striving to reality". Internet broke the barrier of virtual hermeneutic living in one physical environment. Reality have never been more "unreplicable" than these days I would say. I honor this reality powered by Internet and pirates:)
involvement in
other organizations
I was active in several local initiatives as a student. [as civil society activist mostly]
goals for 2010 Promotion of pirate principles trough NGO sector and to collect 10 000 signatures for registering political party. One important principle as my guide for living is to use both my body and my mind, exercising the balance given to us as humans. (Of course I do this balance thing for living too) With this in progress, I am sure that skilled pirates will make the world a better place.
