Hello School of Data,
I am a research assistant on a project looking at liveness and music streaming at the University of Oslo. Last year I did a masters at University of Edinburgh where I wrote a thesis on "Open Public Data", in which I tried to contextualise the emerging trend of open data. Currently I try to combine the practical and theoretical aspects of working with data, especially public data, and how to create meaning from an abundance of records. I think the school of data is a great way to both spread interest about the topic as well as practical skills. I look forward to learn lots and hopefully contribute with something myself. My background is mostly theoretical, but I enjoy scripting and have experienced great pleasure in creating some screen-scraping scripts. I also try to maintain my blog at lovholm.net.
Looking forward to begin! :)
