Christopher Kullenberg – The Swede of the Year

Chrisk was appointed ‘The Swede of the Year’ by the news magazine Fokus.
He is a net activist, blogger and also a science post-doc at Gothenburg University. He is also part of the network Telecomix which helped the Egyptian activists when the Arab Spring spread to Cairo’s Tahrir Square.
In Swedish Radio he says that he will continue to fight for freedom of speech and openness on the Internet after being appointed “Swede of the Year” for helping pro-democracy activists in Egypt stay online despite then-dictator Hosni Mubarak pressing the off button on the beleaguered nation’s Internet.
