hi! 👋

I’m Claudio Ruiz (Santiago, 1978). I’m a digital strategist, internet rights and open content advocate.

I’m interested in all what is related to the connection between digital space and human rights. I believe in the importance of openness, communities, and policy to create better digital ecosystems.


Currently, I’m Director of Ecosystem Strategy at Creative Commons, the non-profit well known as the global standard for free and open licensing online. I work there on global strategies, policy and networks (made of people). I’m also an affiliate at the the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.

Formerly, I founded Derechos Digitales (2003-2016), an independent nonprofit digital rights organisation in Latin America. I was its Executive Director for over ten years and now I serve as a member of the Board of Directors.


I live in Santiago, Chile.

I’ve been channeling my curiosity in different ways, being music one of the ones I love the most. I’ve been a music critic in the past and I co-hosted a radio show called Super45 for more than seven years sharing sweet indie music and doing interviews to musicians and producers twice a week at Radio Zero.

Tired of the boring music programming on local radio and the perpetual foolness of the algorithms on streaming services, with a group of friends we just created an online non-for-profit old school independent radio. It’s called Super45.fm. Every Tuesday at 5PM (CLT), I’m hosting a radio show called Cancion de Lejos, where I share beautiful tunes from far away from Chile.

I have an awesome newsletter where I share records I love and I have some story to share about. Or something like that. It’s called Canciones Buenas, and if you read in Spanish I’m pretty sure you would love to be suscribed <3.
