autofunk.dk is the personal web page of Christian Villum, an independent and self-employed project bootstrapper, disruptive technology geek, open data/society activist & electronic music buff.
I live in Copenhagen, Denmark, and work as Project Manager for Danish Design Centre. On the side I run a number of projects including the maverick music label Uhrlaut Records; a boutique record label that embrace file sharing and Internet culture to release challenging Scandinavian electronic music. I am also a member of the Science Friction art & technology crew in Copenhagen - and furthermore often serve as inspirational speaker about open culture & new technologies. With a background and interest in media and culture entrepreneurship, community creation, hacktivism and everything open, I enjoy bringing people together to share new ideas - and to create movement.
Main previous credits include co-founding and co-directing the experimental Platform4 art & technology venue/hackerspace, building global community as International Community Manager for Open Knowledge (Foundation) in London, pioneering the use of Creative Commons licenses for international record releases, heading the European Blip chiptune festivals and initiating a series of projects and businesses. I hold an MA in Culture, Communication & Globalization from Aalborg University and have previously lived, worked and studied in Berlin, New York and Chicago. Whenever possible, I try to find time to code, play with 3D-printers and build Arduino projects.
