It was a mix of completely surreal and utterly mundane. Well, as mundane as you can get at a pool party with 3 indicted internet millionaires catered by their butler.
We talked about all the things you’d expect – the heavy-handedness of the original raid, how they coped for months without internet (“it was really boring”), and their prospects for the future. They are confident nothing will come of the charges, but are keen to defend themselves legally to whatever degree they need to.
Perhaps the most amazing part of the night were Bram and Finn’s compliments about the Hallertau IPA we took along. I was surprised to see a German drinking terrible piss-water (Heineken), and happy they liked a good drop.
