In an effort to “open” my PhD process, I will be making an effort to post more frequently here with what I’m reading, what I’m working on, and project updates. I was inspired by NPR / Berkman Fellow / 18F openness evangelist Melody Kramer‘s philosophy of opening processes to make things truly public. You can hear about it in her own words on one of my favorite podcasts, Nerdette:
Her philosophy that for public media to be truly public, the process of creating the media should be open to the public and it should facilitate audience participation to the greatest extent possible. Public radio should be by the people, for the people, if you will. So, since my PhD is funded by the Swedish government, here is my PhD for the people (though not in Swedish, my apologies).
