Rob Baker: Managing risk in the open data and crowdsourcing space

Rob Baker, currently a Presidential Innovation Fellow with USAID, was willing to sit down with me earlier this year to discuss risk management and ethics in crowdsourcing in disaster and conflict-affected regions.  He’s incredibly smart, insightful, and brings a deep technical expertise to the practice of crisis mapping and crowdsourcing given his many years of work with Ushahidi.  This interview was used in my forthcoming paper in the Georgetown Journal of International Affairs on the ethics of using communication technology for crowdsourcing in conflict-affected settings.  This is also my first crack at a pod cast, so hopefully it provides some good lunchtime or afternoon listening!
