About Philip

Philip Serracino Inglott is a geek and a tinkerer at heart. As a student of philosophy he derives his greatest pleasure from helping engineering students fix their bikes. He comes from Malta where he graduated in Philosophy and IT in 1996. While working for an NGO in the field of European project funding he had the opportunity to participate in the Virtual University of the Small States of the Commonwealth, a Commonwealth of Learning project aimed at using open software technology to aid education in developing small states. After that fulfilling experience Philip chose to go back to study philosophy. He obtained his Masters in Philosophy of Science, Technology and Society from the University of Twente in 2010. His thesis dealt with Wikipedia, Open Source Software and their relationship to Deliberative Democracy.

At TU Delft, Philip will be looking the effects of Web2.0 and related technologies on the moral frameworks of the Internet native generation. He wants to uncover the common moral thread that ties together Wikileaks and Anime Music Videos to Open Source and Open Access. Philip is intrigued by how the Internet feeds moments like Occupy Wall Street and the Arab Spring. Beyond the use of the net as tool to facilitate and promote such movements, does the practice of using the Internet shape our moral frameworks to be less tolerant of authoritarian rule?

Philip is married to Victoria. He is an occasional contributor of photos to Wikipedia. passionate about food, and enjoys listening to both Opera and Drum'n'Bass.
