That certainly is a problem. A brute force solution to that problem is to make sure the network has enough "non-government" nodes to drive down the probability figures in such analyses. I guess if the probability of identifying an end node is low enough, that also makes it less likely for the government to seek warrants. (Unless they are just trying to bring down all nodes of the network.)
The I2P website has a list of different threat models and links to related papers. I guess this one falls under partitioning attacks.

I'm not sure I'm qualified but, in loose wording. The entity running N nodes should not know how long the bounce length is. In that way it cannot determine if the nodes it is talking to are endpoints or just routing nodes. Also, since the data is encrypted, the entity cannot read it in transit.

Spotify Releases a Linux-Only Client Library 96

f0rk writes "Spotify, a popular music streaming service, has just recently released libspotify. An official, binary-only, only for subscribers, library to 'enable and inspire you to build some really cool stuff.' The first release only has support for x86-32 Linux, the only major platform Spotify does not run on. It looks like the Spotify team is trying to be nice to the Linux community and hope someone will use their restricted binary-only library to write a Linux client."

They have more members than the green party , which HAS seats in parliament.

Looking at the pirate partys web page, they clearly state (on the first page) that they have roughly half the number of members as the green party. Furthermore, the green party got 5.24% last election being the coalition party with least votes, while the pirate party got 0.63%, behind SD and FI which got 2.93% and 0.68% respectively. So saying that the pirate party was close to a seat in parliment is not really true at all.
