Episode #10 – Open Referrals with Greg Bloom

This is OK Cast Episode 10! In this episode, Bill Bushey (@wbushey) and Alex Fink (@alexfink) discuss the work of OpenReferral with Greg Bloom. You can reach him on Twitter @greggish. Their vision (which I love) is to be part of creating a world where everyone has access to — and the ability to effectively use — information about the resources that are available in their community. They are working to do this by creating open standards and open platforms, which we’ll hear more about from Greg in the interview. Greg is the organizer of OpenReferral. You can find out more about him and OpenReferral on their website at openreferral.org.

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.
