As he states in his Twitter bio, Smari is an information freedom activist, he writes codes, essays & articles, gives talks, wrestles with governments and builds technical, political and social infrastructure.
He is also a thoughtful anarchist and very passionate about sustainable technology.
In early 2010, Smari proposed the Shadow Parliament Project, which is completely based on crowdsourcing. The main reason for starting this project lies in the financial collapse in Iceland that occurred in October 2008. Therefore, Smari and his colleagues created a website where they published all the issues going through the real parliament and allowed people to state their opinions on the issues concerning the collapse.
