I guess I should do this too, just to round out the completeness.
My name is Andrew Norton, and I currently live in the US.
Many of the older members will know me, but for those that don't...
I was born in Liverpool, 30 years ago, and moved to the US 7 years ago. I was the chairman of the US Pirate Party for 15 months, followed by running Pirate Party International for 9 months after that. I stepped down from that position last summer to concentrate on my book (on p2p/copyright) and research.
I occasionally do research work for TorrentFreak (and moderate their comments) and I used to work, a decade or so ago, as a copyright enforcer for a small record company (dealing mainly in small-scale commercial infringement)
Politically, I've worked on campaigns for the Liberal party in the late 90s, and I've also been a member of both the Conservative party and the OMRLP. I also have some political contacts still - one school friend is married to a LibDem MP, and another is running as a Tory MP this election (he's already on the council). Stateside, I have worked mostly with the Libertarians, aside from the US party.
I produce analysis on sales and box office figures on my blog - I'm focusing on US box office figures over the last 20 years right now. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask, either here, or on IRC, where I can usually be found.
