Digital Philosopher & Artist
Alexander is a cyberphilosopher, music producer, television show host, and highly sought-after international lecturer. He is the author of the globally successful The Futurica Trilogy – co-written with media theorist Jan Söderqvist, and so far translated to over 20 languages – consisting of The Netocrats, The Global Empire and The Body Machines.
October 2014 sees the release of Alexander’s fourth book with Söderqvist: Syntheism – Creating God in The Internet Age, in which the authors set out to construct a complete new metaphysical system for the digital age, covering everything from the inner existential truths of the new physics to the radical utopian potential of participatory culture.
Alexander studied Economic Geography at The Stockholm School of Economics in the 1980s while building a highly successful international career as a songwriter and record producer. In 1992, he and his business partner Ola Håkansson co-founded Stockholm Records – which quickly achieved global success with bands like The Cardigans, A-Teens, and Bard’s own Army Of Lovers – which went on to become Scandinavia’s biggest independent record company before it was sold to Universal Music in 1998.
Even though he has claimed to be too busy with cyberphilosophy and political and spiritual activism to find the time for any more songwriting, Alexander achieved No 1 hit records in both Europe, Asia and North America as late as 2013. Never afraid of entering the stages himself on which he builds his groundbreaking theories, Alexander has become (in)famous for his controversial television performances as a flamboyant star judge on Swedish Idol.
Alexander has given lectures on the philosophical, sociological, and economic implications of the internet revolution at the Stockholm School of Economics and other academic institutions worldwide since the late 1990s. Having Alexander as a keynote speaker means extraordinary lecturing and not just another predictable power-point presentation. Having made it a habit to talk dressed in haute couture shorts and an impressive fin de siècle beard, Alexander gives impressive speeches and interesting insights into his thinking. He makes an ideal match to enlighten business and management conferences around the world.

Welcome to Open Source Nordic
Open Source at IP EXPO Nordic gives IT leaders all the insight and technology they need to understand how Open Source can benefit their organisation.
The rapid expansion of open source impacts across every facet of the modern enterprise from cloud computing, big data, operating systems, to the Internet of Things (IoT).
Using an open source development methodology can be markedly different to a closed source equivalent. At IP EXPO Nordic you can pick up practical tips from our seminars or take in technical demonstrations from a range of experts.
Open Source operating systems, such as Linux, are now widely used across the enterprise and are used for all kinds of workloads and business critical applications. With a worldwide community of developers contributing to the source code it’s a proposition on the consideration list of forward looking IT leaders.
Security has become an integral part of all aspects of software development. Projects such as Linux and Apache are commonplace in enterprise IT systems and at IP EXPO Nordic the security implications of using such open source projects (as well as closed source and proprietary software) will be debated in detail by a wealth of international experts.
Traditionally Open Source vs Proprietary has been billed as a battle of Ideology vs Practicality and despite the seemingly large operational benefits and costs savings of running open source the complexity, perceived risk and shortage of staff with the required skills (and their cost) was seen as a major deterrent. At IP EXPO Nordic you will hear from end users at all stages of their journey giving you the opportunity learn from both their successes and setbacks.
