Dariusz has voiced his support for the enabling of paid editing of Wikipedia under certain constraints,[23] and has been vocal about reducing the bureaucracy within projects.[24][25] He is an advocate of wider involvement of women and academics in the Wikimedia movement,[26][27][28][29] and the need to start actively promoting its use and development in academia.[30]

He has authored a book on the social organization of Wikipedia, titled Common Knowledge?: An Ethnography of Wikipedia, following a period of research on identity and roles in open source projects, in the form of participating ethnography.[31][32] The book was well received by critics and other scholars.[33][34][35][36][37][38][39][40][41] More recently, he co-wrote a book about the collaborative society (2020, MIT Press), explaining seemingly unrelated phenomena such as citizen science, peer production, platform capitalism, creative commons, or the quantified self.
