Research overview

Is open enough? Towards context aware open data practices. (working title)

My research explores contexts of open data re-use; focussing specifically on people and places. Data can be considered an abstract phenomenon, but is increasingly impacting upon our everyday lives. Furthermore, it exists in a "non-place", in data centres far removed from our view and used by people with the skills and infrastucture to do so. I am interested in discovering whether it is possible to develop a context aware open data practice that challenges current dominant practices, such as the hackathon or data drive, one which engages people and places.
