Open data anti-dashboard
I have added a new page to this website, Gardening the Commons. It is a self-updating story about my contributions to some open data platforms.
It can be slightly odd to contribute unpaid labor to online platforms. It can be quite time-consuming to figure out the rules, vocabularies, tooling and all the social stuff that comes with participating in communities. Yet I deeply feel like I do something valuable by contributing, like I participate in something genuinely useful for a lot of people. I hope to share some of my excitement and joy with this "Hero of Labor" badge, and maybe it helps others find a way to participate as well.
