Sunlight Foundation – Taking Open Data the Last Mile

We will keep developing the theme of taking #OpenData the “Last Mile”, meaning to users and researchers who otherwise wouldn’t know how to access or use it.

In addition to hosting the OKCast, I am a Ph.D. student in Youth Studies at the University of Minnesota. I study methods of making research to document injustice and resistance available to young people to create social change. My particular focus is on the political economy and ecology of data, including data collection, data use, data access/sharing, data economics, and the ideologies surrounding it.
