Hey there – welcome to the Tulip Labs. You will find here information about my background and interests as well as a series of articles related to the sofware industry.
I am former digital freedoms advocate now looking after public property and grounds in South England. I grew up and studied in Paris, traveled in Europe and across the Atlantic, settled down in Brussels where I spent seven years and eventually moved to the UK in 2013.
Fourteen years ago I completed my studies with an LL.M in Digital Law followed by an internship at the European Parliament. It opened my eyes on the questions at stake in terms of innovation and together at same time, the future of our society.
Doesn’t creativity drive our world? I believe so, and here is where my commitment to understand, highlight and defeat unnecessary barriers to innovation started.
In a world in constant changes, our capacity to adapt our behaviours to new situations is of vital importance. As a matter of survival it is thus essential to let innovators do their work: study what exists, come up with new solutions.
He who aims for innovation needs access to knowledge and freedom of expression. This matches article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which includes ‘freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers’.
Sadly, outdated models hampering those very values are currently still in force.
The Tulip Labs is my personal space. For more information about my web related activities visit Matalex Labs – our UK based partnership supplying computer games and apps.
