This perpetual toggling between nothing being new, under the sun, and everything having very recently changed - William Gibson

About me

I am a sociologist, maker of digital strategies and public policies, advocate and researcher of digital society. I am the Strategy Director at Open Future, a European think tank for the Open Movement. In 2010-2020, I have been the President of Centrum Cyfrowe, a Polish foundation working to make the internet for the people. I am a Creative Commons activist. In 2014, I co-founded Creative Commons Poland. I am currently a Member of the Board of Directors of the Creative Commons organisation and of the Executive Committee of the CC Global Network. In 2015-2017 I co-chaired the Network Strategy process, which led to the launch of a new Creative Commons Global Network. I co-founded and I am a member of Communia, the European Association on the Digital Public Domain.

My work

I am a new member of the Wikimedia Movement, although my ties to the movement go back to the beginning of my open activism. I am a member of Stowarzyszenie Wikimedia Polska, the Polish Wikimedia Chapter. Previously, I have been the coordinator and member of the Working Group on Partnerships, within the Movement Strategy process.
