Breathin' so free on non-extradition soil now. Breakup with USA is done now.

I wonder what that means. On one hand, he could go full black-hat and go on a hacking spree. Hacking doesn't require anything more than a cheap laptop and a dial-up/satellite connection, so it can be done from anywhere in the world.
On the other hand, he could also go full white-hat. There is lots of useful white-hat research that we don't do because of the chilling effect of government. For example, in our VNC research, we don't test default password logins for some equipment, because this can be interpreted as violating the CFAA. However, if 'weev' never intends on traveling to an extradition country, it's something he can do, and report the results to help us secure systems.
Thirdly, he can now freely speak out against the United States. Again, while we theoretically have the right to "free speech", we see how those like Barret Brown are in jail purely because they spoke out against the police-state.
