Matthijs den Besten is research fellow at the Pôle de Recherche en Economie et Gestion of the Ecole Polytechnique. His research focuses on the regulation of information access in creative, ICT-mediated, activities involving many participants. It includes the analysis of practices that emerge among communities on the Internet as well as the analysis of the impact of access restrictions that are imposed on groups of collaborators or competitors in more experimental settings.
