His ventures include English Proper, a translation company; The Infinite Faculty, an online university, web design firm, and rock band; and Die Grosse Liebe, an exhibition and film based on the principle that love is "a powerful force" (he and his collaborator, Åsa Elzén, embarked on a world tour in 2003-04 to visit former lovers on several continents).

Delaney is also one of the founding members of the Swedish Hegel Society (Svenska Hegelsällskapet), and is on the editorial board of Site Magazine. His articles for Site have focused on German philosophy as well as on European attitudes towards the U.S.

His translation of Den andra födan (English: As a Weasel Sucks Eggs), by Daniel Birnbaum and Anders Olsson, was published by Sternberg Press in October, 2008.

In April 2009, the Swedish Academy awarded him a special honor for his work on the translation of the Phenomenology of Spirit.[1]
