Welcome.

I’m Angela Hitomi Skye Crandall Okune.

I set up this blog to provide updates throughout my PhD research journey. I blog occasionally but every year my new year’s resolution is to do better.

I began my PhD in socio-cultural Anthropology in August 2015 and hope to finish by August 2021. I am originally from Honolulu, Hawaii. I studied in Washington, DC for four cold years before moving to Nairobi, Kenya. I lived and worked in Nairobi (during which time I also met my spouse) for nearly five years before moving to Irvine, California to enroll in the PhD program. I am currently based in San Francisco, California with my family.

I repost various resources that get forwarded to me here.

Find the open data portal that I manage which includes data from my fieldwork here and context about why I set it up here.

Find the beginning of an archival collection about iHub Research here.

Learn more here about Quotidian Data, a research institute I co-founded that focuses on advancing understanding of the socio-technical layers of knowledge production and stewardship especially related to data.
