Piotr Migdał1, PhD student at ICFO - Institut de Ciències Fotòniques, Castelldefels (Barcelona) in the Quantum Optics Theory Group of prof. Maciej Lewenstein (and collaborating with ISI Foundation, Turin, Italy). Originally from Bielsko-Biała (southern Poland). Alumnus of the University of Warsaw (Phys + Maths), KFnrD and RSI2005.
Interested in quantum geometry and mathematical modeling in psychology; now turning into a data scientist. Dedicated to education of gifted schoolchildren and organization of bottom-up activities. In free time enjoys photography, hiking and coding. Dreams about revolutionizing how science and education are done. Loves good e-mails.

Yes, I wrote the Mafia game paper.
Some of my ideas (e.g. on writing educational games about curved space and quantum optics).
The current issue(s):
- 4th Offtopicarium, 3-5 Jan 2014, Warsaw - an unconference with total freedom on topic, for people from different fields (application deadline: 1 Dec 2013).
- Compass, the San Francisco-based startup I have been interning in, has relaunched! :)
- 3rd Offtopicarium, 9-12 Aug 2013, Warsaw; also checkout Minerviad, 30 Jun - 2 Jul 2013, Tel Aviv, an unconference in a similar spirit.
- Themes and colors of books - an interactive visualizations in D3.js (or in Polish: Motywy i kolory ze zbioru Wolnych Lektur).
- Designing a quantum mechanics game (and another one, about electric circuits).
- Hacking Science - creating a community of people interested in (and wanting to contribute to) open science, bottom-up scientific initiatives, new ways of collaborating and sharing knowledge etc.
- Graph Map of Tags at StackExchange sites.
- The 2nd Offtopicarium, 4-6 Jan 2013, Warsaw is over. What to participate in the next edition - leave your e-mail there.
- An article An independent camp for high school geeks - on teaching gifted kids, bootstrapping an event and an informal atmosphere.
- A summary of a talk on Open Science and Science 2.0.
- Offtopicarium (10-14 Aug 2012, Warsaw, Poland) - an unconference for young people with ideas: PhD students, startupers, social activists, creative programmers etc
- Confrenzy is launched - come and test it (don't forget to like it and see its blog). And never miss a scientific event, never miss a deadline! (Currently frozen; call it Confreezy.)
The tower is worth more than a single stone.
