Peter Sunde is one of the speaker of Wired UK 2011 with O2 Conference taking place in London Oct. 13-14th.
A few months ago we interviewed him in Paris at the NetExplorateur forum, at the Unesco.
He has launched Flattr – a micropayments system – with co-founder Linus Olsson.
The service enables visitors of websites to make small donations by clicking a “Flattr this” button to reward the creator of the content. Peter Sunde explains that the amount of money you pay each month will be spread evenly among the buttons you click in a month. Flattr takes a 10 percent fee from the user’s monthly flatrate.
Before co-founding Flattr, Peter Sunde was best known for being a co-founder and the spokesperson of The Pirate Bay, a BitTorrent tracker site.
