Bjarke Calvin is CEO and Founder of Duckling -- an app that makes it easy and playful to share insight media on your mobile device. With Duckling, MIT students and others document the informal knowledge that takes place outside classrooms and papers. The mission is to make insight media a counterweight to the polarization and echo chambers of social media, by introducing a format and a business model built on contextual and collective human thinking.
Before launching Duckling, Bjarke founded Storyplanet, which was the first tool for building interactive documentaries without coding. The common denominator in all of Bjarke's work is a fundamental belief that the next step in human evolution lies in collective knowledge created through storytelling.
He started a long career in interactive documentary in 2001 with publishing one of the worlds first interactive documentaries, The Enemy Within. The project was recently canonized by IDFA as one the 100 most influential interactive media pieces of this century. After this he worked as head of digital development at Magnum Photos, before staring a long streak as founder and adviser of media startups.
