My name is Kevin Schiroo. I’m a computer scientist living in the Twin Cities. I’ve done a lot of things. I’ve worked as a data scientist with the Wiki Education Foundation, a graduate research assistant with Grouplens at the University of Minnesota, and a software engineer working on the Power Hypervisor at IBM.
My current technical interests focus on open data. I like finding it, gathering it, and analyzing it. I’ve specifically taken an interest in local data. We live in a global society now, but somewhere along the way I think we collectively forgot how big the world right next to us still is.
