Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah w abarakatoh,
When a friend of mine told me that there r some guys thought to buy an island (originally owned by England) to build their own country and put their own rules and such.. I was just amused and wanted to read more.. and here is a summary of the story :
AFCI is a group of people who don't like the current Copyright laws (and who does!!) so they decided to search for a new country where they can put their own laws of copyright, Imagine u can live in the IT World for FREEE... imagine a country where ur president (maybe u will be the president one day) is a developer (a hacker maybe !!) maybe u will have to write some lines of code to pay for ur car rental... or contribute in an open-source project to buy a better apartment..
There are a lot of interesting endless ideas that came to my mind... I really like the idea and I like that they have a Plan B in case they didn't manage to get the required money (about 500m British Pounds) they r planning to get a smaller island (prices start from 50 000$) ...
It's just a dream.. but who knows, maybe one day we pay a lot to send our children to study Computer Science there....
