Episode #22 – Arfon Smith – GitHub, Open Science and Academic Culture Change

In this episode, I talk with Arfon Smith of GitHub.com. At GitHub, Arfon promotes academic engagement in open source code and open science. Prior to working at GitHub, Arfon worked in a number of positions where he supported a changing infrastructure for the scientific process, built around open source, open data, and open science. You can find Arfon on Twitter @arfon or on GitHub.

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.
