The Pirate Party

To be filed in the People who Do Cool Things file:
The Pirate Party in Sweden might have enough votes to win a seat in the European Parliament. They want to essentially rewrite copyright law so that music, movies, and all media is freely shared online. They were formed after the government shut down a file-sharing site called Pirate Bay. A bunch of geeky IT guys are at the core of the party. Go Geeky Pirates!
