NeRDS (the New Research on Digital Societies) group was established in 2013 at Kozminski University in Warsaw (Poland). Our aim is to study digital societies by the means of virtual ethnography, anthropology of the Internet, digital sociology, but also network analysis and other quantitative methods. Our projects so far include studies of open collaboration communities (such as Wikipedia), Couchsurfing, the Second Life, anti-vaccine discourse online, as well as virtual communities of museums. NeRDS are a proud member of the international Network of Centers. In 2017 our department changed its name, and now NeRDS have MINDS (Management in Networked and Digital Societies) department.
