Mason, M ~ The Pirate’s Dilemma

“If you go back through history you can see there is clearly always value in what pirates are doing. It just takes us a while to figure it out. It is very easy to break a business model. It is hard to put a new one in place. And that’s the problem we are facing now.”

“The only way to beat piracy is to compete with pirates.” (Steve Jobs)

About the author

Woitek Konzal

Producer, Consultant, Lecturer & Researcher. I love working where technology meets media in novel ways. Once, I even won an Emmy for digital innovation doing that. Be it for a small but exciting campaign about underground electronic music collectives or for a monster project combining two movies, various 360° videos, 72 ARG-like mini puzzles, and a Unity game, all wrapped up in one cross-platform app – I have proven my ability to adapt to what is required. This passion for novel technologies has regularly allowed me to cross paths with tech startups – an industry and philosophy I am all set to engage with more. I intensely enjoy balancing out my practical work with academic research, teaching, and consulting. Also, I have a PhD in Creative Industries, a M.Sc. in Business Administration, and love to kitesurf.
