Dariusz Jemielniak

Dariusz Jemielniak is a Wikipedian, a Full Professor of Management at Kozminski University, and an entrepreneur.

Dariusz currently serves on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees, for the Wikimedia Foundation. In his academic life, he studies the open collaboration movement (in 2014, he published “Common Knowledge? An Ethnography of Wikipedia” with Stanford University Press), media file-sharing practices (among lawyers and free knowledge activists), as well as political memes’ communities.

He had visiting appointments at Cornell University (2004-2005), Harvard (2007, 2011-2012, 2015-2016, 2019-2020), MIT (2015-2016, 2019-2020), and the University of California, Berkeley (2008), where he studied software engineers’ workplace culture.

His current work is focused on collaborative society (2020, “Collaborative Society”, MIT Press, co-author A. Przegalinska), a phenomenon of technology radically enhancing a natural trend of people to cooperate, visible in peer-to-peer production, uberization, online cooperatives, but also in meme culture, and better explaining the emerging change than the buzzword “sharing economy.”

He is also continuously interested in combining qualitative methods and quantitative methods in digital society research (2020, “Thick Big Data”, Oxford University Press).

He also is the co-founder and CEO of RunPixie, an AI image recognition startup aimed at disrupting race photo fraud in running and biking events by connecting athletes with photographers. Previous to RunPixie, he was the co-founder and CEO of InstaLing, a free platform supporting language teachers currently used by 220k people, and a chief community strategist at Foap, a platform making photo and video creators get a fair share of royalties from marketing campaigns, with a community of over 3 million users.
