Diversity and Enthusiasm: My take on Digital Nepal Conference,…

As we know, things are pretty unpredictable in Nepal. Right before the Digital Nepal Conference – Janakpur, because of unfortunate and tragic events, a strike was announced. After monitoring the situation closely, talking to people, and considering the high demand from youths in the region, Code for Nepal decided that it would be OK to go forward with the conference.

I had only been to Janakpur once as a child many years ago. As someone who had not really explored the southern parts of the country, I decided to go to Janakpur despite the challenges of the strike. Frankly, my friend, Avinash, and I were both a bit nervous. However, we were also very excited.

We decided to fly on March 8. I almost did not make it to the airport on time because of heavy traffic on the road in Kathmandu. After all the hassle, when we landed safely in Janakpur, Ravi and the Code for Nepal team were there to greet us at the airport. It was so reassuring to see familiar faces. Half of the passengers who traveled on that plane were attending the conference. Isn’t that amazing?

From the airport, we took a Tuk Tuk. It was my first time riding a Tuk Tuk. On the way to the hotel, I realized how clean and beautiful Janakpur had become (Ravi says the town used to be cleaner when he was growing up there). Most importantly, the weather was perfect. Later that day, we also visited Janaki Mandir and surrounding ponds. Janakpur is such a religious and historical town. People are friendly.

That evening, there was a journalism workshop for local journalists of Janakpur. It was a normal kind of workshop, similar to ones I used to see more frequently while attending events in Kathmandu. The workshop was facilitated by Dietrich Ayala, David and Ravi Kumar Nepal, where participants learned about using technology for storytelling. But it was when the team of Accountability Lab started the discussion about Open Government, that I saw the enthusiasm of participants. They openly discussed how the concept of Open Government can be helpful for all Nepalese citizens. Some also shared problems that they are facing, which can only be solved by governments.

Since there was a strike that day, there was nothing much to expect. But thanks to Pratap Adhikari from Association of Youth Organizations Nepal (AYON) who made our night awesome. He took us on a Janakpur tour, during which we visited almost all the important temples and ponds of Janakpur. We also enjoyed watching puja happening at Ganga Sagar, and more importantly, enjoying the taste of Janakpur lassi was an awesome feeling.

On the 2nd day of the conference, I joined Alisha Chettri from the Women Development Advocacy Center at the registration desk. This gave me a chance to understand how diverse the conference was going to be. Yes, diverse – which is hard to see in Kathmandu-based events. Young students, housewives, shopkeepers, journalists and community leaders were there to attend the conference. Female participants were also in a good number.

The conference started and as usual, I started snapping photos to post them on our social media account, which I believe is one of the best ways to do documentation of an event. Taking photos, listening to speakers and going Facebook Live sometimes, I was enjoying it. However, I found it interesting when participants started asking questions to presenters. This showed how enthusiastic they were. They were engaged in all presentations and panel discussions. Asking questions, sharing their views, interactions were from both sides. After all the presentations and panel discussions, a token of love was given to each presenter, and t-shirts were given to all participants. Some left the venue and the rest of us went for a group photo. Ohh, group photo and my selfie 😛

After the conference ended, we caught up with Pratap Adhikari again and went to taste Janakpur fish. Don’t know whether I should be saying it or not, but that evening I came to know that strong beer is found only in Terai districts. After enjoying the fish, we went for dinner where Ravi gave us a treat, and I must say that the food was amazing. Later that night, Dietrich and I enjoyed an omelet of a duck egg also.

I must say that my three-day-visit of Janakpur was awesome, and this time my experience was different. My contribution at Digital Nepal Conference was limited, but the conference gave me an opportunity to enjoy and interact with nice people of Janakpur. Hope this kind of event will be organized outside of the valley more frequently.

Amateur Nikesh, Amateur Journey: Looking Back 2016

Reflection is something that makes you emotional, at some point, you enjoy the taste of success and at some point, you almost cry remembering the journey you travel. Memories of old new friends make you feel sad and the enthusiasm of making your future bright push you harder to move forward. The year 2016 was one of the confused years for me, where I struggle to make a big decision, in the beginning, lost my Grandfather, planned something and did something else!! Here are some Ups and Downs of my journey of the year 2016, Where enthusiasm of junior was stronger than the pressure of senior, where people criticize me for my childish behaviors and at the same time some people support my never giving up attitude.

1) Joining Acme once again

A confused year and a totally confused decision made in 2015 and realized in 2016. Gaps, Bachelor Degree, Future, Friends and much more. Was Engineering my right decision, I doubt so but I am still confused. Let’s see how long I can go!!

2) Launching Nepal Open Data Index

The work of 2015 but was launched in January 2016, the result of crowdsourced open data survey done in 10 different districts of Nepal, which helps us to understand the condition of open data and technology in the local cities of Nepal.

3) Organizing International Open Data Day 2016

Officially the first event of the year, Yes once again we organize International Open Data Day in Kathmandu. This year we organize Datathon, where we collect the information of different Public Bodies of Nepal. Thanks go to awesome teams, supporters and well-wishers, with limited resources and time, we did something great that day.

4) Loosing Grandfather started drinking alcohol

One of the moments of 2016, which I never wanted to remember, yes never. Maybe that’s the reason why I started drinking alcohol, to forget that pain and memories. The pain of losing grandfather, the pain of being alone.

5) FOSS Nepal PoC and celebrating Software Freedom Day 2016

Working to shape the FOSS Nepal Community structure was another thing where I worked hard by bringing the concept of FOSS Nepal Person of Contact (PoC) but was unsuccessful at the end. Yes or Maybe, I don’t know but the Software Freedom Day 2016 celebration was a huge success. The preparation was good and execution was perfect, Kudos to the team, those new faces, and their enthusiasm. Ohh Gosh, I love them and miss them, they were awesome.

6) Working on Open Data Handbook Nepali Version

One of the 75% completed core project of Open Knowledge Nepal, where we work hard for translation, which isn’t really that much good but we did it. I personally work lots in writing so that we can do fundraising for that project, let’s see, we plan to launch that project in 2017 since the review of the handbook is still left.

7) Virtually marking Open Access Week 2016

For the third time in a row, I decided to mark the Nepal presence in Open Access Week. Since Open Access Week falls in festival season, it’s always challenging to celebrate it through physical events, my previous experience of organizing it says. But this year the plan was something different, We did QA with some know and active Open Access Activist of Nepal so we can gather the info about is the current situation and share it with others.

8) Joining Code for Nepal as AskNepal Initiative lead

I was always the secret well-wishers of Code for Nepal, the things which they are doing or trying to do is really awesome. In October 2016, I decided to join them as an AskNepal Lead. A project which I think is very impactful in the context of Nepal.

9) Receiving Shuttleworth Flash Grant

The highlight of the 2016 end, being nominated by the Founder of Open Knowledge Internation for Shuttleworth Flash Grant to recognize my contribution in the field of Open Knowledge and Data in Nepal. I was one of the grantees of Flash Grant.

10) Structuring Open Knowledge Nepal

Last planning of 2016 and first work in To-Do list of 2017, giving right structure to the work and projects of Open Knowledge Nepal. Lots of works are already done, planning is in the right stage, let’s see how well we can execute it in the year 2017.

2017 I am ready for you, Come on!!

Mapping my HomeTown

Unplanned outputs are awesome and I love it especially when someone close to my heart admires it. Yes, someone close to me and my heart. One of the role models of my life, My father was pretty much happy with me yesterday and was admiring my work, when I completed one of the simple tasks given by him. A task of creating a digital map of our HomeTown.

Sounds easy especially for me who know how to play with technology and also pretty much well familiar with OpenStreet Map, but the journey wasn’t really that much easy for me. Cutting all those journeys parts and coming directly in output. Here is how I made progress and created a digital map of my Hometown.

First Step: Using my old sketch for some basic start.

A map which I created while taking part in OpenStreet Map workshop last month organized by Kathmandu Living Labs.

Second Step: Using the paper map created by our Community Club president for details.

A map which I collected from the president of our Community Club "Ekta Yuwa Club".

Third Step: Using OpenStreep Map for creating a digital map of my HomeTown.

A digital map which I created using OpenStreet Map.
A digital map which I created using OpenStreet Map.

We also printed that map and hang it on the wall of our Community Club so, that every new people coming to our town can know about the beautiful road network and respective names of those pathways.

Thanks Shuttleworth Foundation for Shuttleworth Flash Grant

Good news never knocks the door, they just come in and surprise you. October 2016 was one of the awesome months for me, where good news keeps entering my room. October – a month full of festivals and holidays for most of the Nepalese, but for me, it was a month full of scheduled works and meetings. Where I make some important decision like applying for Accountability Lab Incubator and leading Code for Nepal project AskNepal initiative. But more importantly getting chosen as an South Asia coordinator for Global Open Data Index 2016 and being nominated for Shuttleworth Flash Grant 2016, was an highlighted news of an month which will be written in Bold letter but it shadowed some of my other achievement like receiving Statement of Accomplishment from Stanford Online and Open University, OpenLearn for completing MOOC. The updates of Open Access Week 2016 and Nepal Open Data Index 2016 also nearly got shadowed in front of that big news.

One of the news which was unplanned and amazed me was being nominated for Shuttleworth Flash Grant. I would like to thank all the team of Shuttleworth Foundation, special thanks to Rufus Pollock for nominating me and Prakash Neupane for mentoring plus helping me to move forward in this Open Knowledge Field. This fund will definitely play a huge role in my and Open Knowledge Nepal future.

I will be utilizing this fund to carve the future of Open Knowledge in Nepal. Most of the percent of this fund will be utilized for the development and deployment of Open Knowledge Nepal important project MyLocalBudgets and Open Data Handbook Nepali version.

MyLocalBudgets is a portal run by the team of Open Knowledge Nepal which tracks down Nepal Government data related to the financial transaction like budgets, spending, balance sheets, procurement etc and publish them in an interactively visualized way, which are easily understandable, customizable and usable from anywhere without any kinds of restriction.

Open Data Handbook Nepali version is the localization of Global Open Data Handbook. The Nepali version of this handbook will include content from Global Open Data Handbook, including Licensing terms from Open Definition. We believe this Open Data Handbook Nepali Version will help Government policy makers, leaders, and common citizens to understand about Data in their Native language easily and CSO can take their awareness program in next level by using the resources.

 

shuttleworth-funded

 

I am pretty sure this project will help us to improve the condition and understanding of Open Data and Open Budgets in Nepal. But, we still have a long way to travel and the plan is to keep traveling. At the end, I would like to thanks, everyone who was part of this journey directly and indirectly.

Why remix an OER, What are the barriers?

This blog is reblogged from the post of Open Learning Network, which is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 UK: England & Wales. I had compiled their two posts Why remix an Open Educational Resource? and What are the barriers to reusing/remixing OERs? in this blog because I found it very useful and helpful for myself.

Why remix an OER:
The list is in no particular order, and by its very nature isn’t an extensive exploration of the reasons to remix an OER.

1) Save yourself time and work by mixing in OERs with your own material to make something richer.
2) Adapt the material to make it more accessible for people with different disabilities.
3) Insert some cultural specific references to make a concept easier to understand.
4) Translate it into another language.
5) Correct any errors or inaccuracies.
6) Keep the OER up to date by adding the latest discoveries or theories.
7) Insert more media or links to other resources.
8) Chop the OER up into smaller chunks that might be easier to learn from, or could be reused elsewhere.
9) Adapt it for a different audience.
10) Use the OER as the basis for a face to face lesson.
11) Change the target educational level.
12) Add input and participation from the people who are going to be using your remixed OER.
13) Use the OER for a wider purpose by adding in other information.
14) Changing the format of the OER to make it work in different computer-based learning environments.
15) To improve understanding of what an OER is by thinking about reasons to remix it.
16) Insert a different point of view to that originally given in the material.
17) Adapt it for different teaching situations.
18) A way to experiment with new skills you have gained (could be technical skills, media skills etc).
19) To improve it.
20) Because you can!

What are the barriers:

1) Internationalization, OERs may be available but in a different language;
2) Cognitive overload: it is difficult to separate the ‘content’ from the ‘context’ in an OER, thus it is difficult to decontextualize an OER and re-contextualize it to a different learning context/purpose;
3) Cognitive overload: in terms of trying to elicit the implicit design of an OER and then needing to create a new design;
4) Cognitive overload due to lack of good examples/ best practice:  “remixing” an OER is a difficult concept to grasp, especially as examples of remixing might be difficult to find or something you wouldn’t tend to stumble across;
5) Digital divide: lack of access to digital network implies no access to digital resources;
6) Digital divide: lack of digital literacy;
7) Lack of teacher’s preparation and training in how to reuse OERs;
8) Distance from mainstream teaching and learning practices and policy;
9) Curriculum alignment: OER may not fit specific curriculum, and vice-versa curriculums may not be designed around an OER reuse/remix culture;
10) Plagiarism: to which extent reusing and remixing an OER can be perceived as a form of plagiarism?;
11) Lack of technical support for teachers; institutionalized support i.e. a dedicated educational technologist team is considered important for promoting re-use within different educational institutions/contexts (relates to digital and socio-economic divides)
12) Copyright issues and different copyright jurisdictions: this is mostly about publishing original OERs, but it also relates to the ways in which an OER is ‘translated’ to different contexts/locations. It also hinders what other items, media objects can be added that are more relevant to a national culture / pedagogical context;
13) Lack of confidence: many teachers/tutors feel reluctant to reuse and publish their reused materials. One possible reason for that is that they feel that they tamper with something that was designed/published for a specific purpose/context; this relates to the conceptual overload mentioned at point 2);
14) Lack of confidence: many teachers/tutors feel reluctant to “mess up” with someone else “good” design;
15) Lack of explicit learning design supporting the representation of resources and dialogue around their use in a particular context; if context/purpose and targetted audience alongside learning outcomes are not very explicit this makes more difficult to repurpose in a different context;
16) Lack of policy embeddedness and accepted institutional practices: OER use and re-use in mainstream educational institutions need’s be legitimized by accepted national policies on education;
17) Issues of quality/legitimacy: some OERs are not considered worthy of using/remixing. Some advocates insist on putting ratings / quality and context indicators. That will enable tracking of use and perhaps stimulate re-use;
18) Lack of time: too much effort to put in reusing makes easier and faster to do it yourself from scratch;
19) Lack of tools to help deconstruct and reconstruct;
20) Lack of motivation – why should I, what’s in it for me?

Public Access to Publicly Funded Materials

This article is Reblogged for Creative Commons blog, Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license.

Cycles for Research Articles

The existing system for producing and distributing publicly funded research articles is expensive and doesn’t take advantage of the possibilities of innovations like open licensing. Without a free-flowing system, access to the results of scientific research is limited to institutions that are able to commit to hefty journal subscriptions — paid for year after year — which don’t allow for broad redistribution, or repurposing for activities such as text and data mining without additional permissions from the rightsholder. This closed system limits the impact on the scientific and scholarly community and progress is slowed significantly.

A Closed Research Model

closed funding cycle for research
When funding cycles for research include open license requirements for publications, increased access and opportunities for reuse extends the value of research funding. As an example, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access Policy requires the published results of all NIH-funded research to be deposited in PubMed Central’s repository, the peer-reviewed manuscript immediately, and the final journal article within twelve months of publication. Similarly, the recent directive issued by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy mandates that federal agencies with more than $100 million in research expenditures must make the results of their research publicly available within one year of publication, and better manage the resultant data supporting their results. These policies utilize aspects of the optimized cycle below, and are a step in the right direction for making better use of public funding for research articles.

An Open Research Model

optimised funding cycle for research
Cycles for Educational Resources

The incumbent system for developing and sharing publicly funded educational resources doesn’t guarantee materials are accessible and reusable by the public that paid for their creation.

A Closed Education Model

closed funding cycle for educational resources
If policies are put in place that mandate open licenses on publicly funded educational resources, knowledge can flow more freely because the public is clear about how they may reuse educational content, and the funders can realize a more impactful return on their investments. An example of better use of public funding for the production of educational resources, the US DOL TAACCCT Program mandates that all content created or modified using grant funds are openly-licensed (CC BY) and deposited in a public repository upon completion of the project. Being conducted in four waves, the TAACCCT program is making better use of a large (US$2 billion) investment of US taxpayer money by ensuring the public will have access the educational resources created during the four-year term, and is able to reuse and adapt them beyond what automatic copyright allows. The following graphic demonstrates an open funding model, with licensing and access recommendations to remove barriers to sharing and help speed access and reuse of publicly funded educational content.

An Open Education Model

optimised funding cycle for educational resources
Summary

Open policy — specifically, the idea that publicly funded materials should be openly licensed materials — is a sensible solution that ensures the public’s right to reuse the materials it paid for, and improves the efficiency of government grant funding. Open licensing is a sensible requirement for publicly funded grant programs.

7 things Nepal can learn from Rufus Pollock paper…

As defined by Open Source Definition at www.opensource.org, it is software that everyone has the freedom to use, modify and share without the need to seek permission or make payment – whoever they are and whatever their purpose. The Open Source Software is free today, free in future and provides freedom of choice today and in the future regarding both vendor and mode of implementation.

In his paper “Why Open Software Matters for Government & Civic Tech”, Rufus Pollock discuss how software is different from other things that government traditionally buy or fund and shows how and why covering:

  • Why open software is especially important for government and civic tech
  • Why open software needs special support and treatment by government
  • What specific actions can be taken to provide this support for open software

Here are 7 key points of activities and factors which I noted from his paper believing that, this are the activities which are feasible for us to implement here at Nepal and will help us to push our 8 years old Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) momentum in our country. I personally believe, we can make a huge impact if we integrate this 7 key point of activities ad factors in Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) Nepal Community upcoming Action Plan and will open the way of discussion.

Activities:

  • Rewarding open source in IT procurement by giving open source explicit recognition and beneficial treatment in procurements. Specifically, introduce into government tenders: EITHER as an explicit requirement for an open source solution OR a significant points value for open source in the scoring of solutions.
  • Promoting commercialization of open source by providing advice, training, and support for open source startups and developers in commercializing and marketing their technology. Open Source developers and startups are often strong on technology and weak on marketing and selling their solutions and this support would help address these deficiencies.
  • Running a grass-roots oriented campaign like ‘choose open’ to promote open software in government and government-run activities such as education.
  • The government is bad at negotiating, especially in this environment and hence the lock-in problem is especially acute for the government. So, making the government good at decision-making and bargaining by showing them a clear future of open source in the market. Due to the incentives faced by the government as a whole and by individuals within governments, they are especially weak when have to make trade-offs between the near-term and the more distant future. Frequently counseling and running awareness camping will work.

Factors:

  • “Market” isn’t that much helpful for open software so, the challenge for us is to make the balanced environment for open software in the market by challenging propitiatory software.
  • Switching costs and lock-in: Most of the users never think about this while making investments in the start, which is the main reason why they find difficulties to switch to an alternative and they end up “Locked-in” to the existing software solutions and vendor. However, for open source the two are different: because the software is open and therefore freely available to anyone-including other vendors- there is no vendor lock-in. Most of the people are still unaware of this problem.
  • The government, and their bureaucratic representative over-discount the future compared to the present. Crudely: in ten years time they may not be in office but the software they brought will probably still be in use. This means they underweight lock-in.

Collecting the information of Nepal Government diverse PublicBodies: PublicBodies…

[5th March 2016] Once again, a bunch of open philosophy believers and lovers gathered for the fourth annual celebration of International Open Data Day 2016 in Nepal. This year Open Data Day was organized in three different places of Nepal and was lead by different communities. Open Knowledge Nepal in collaboration with FOSS Nepal Community and CSIT Association of Nepal, hosted a series of presentations and a PublicBodies Datathon to celebrate the global celebration of openness. The event was held in Nepal Engineers’ Association, Pulchowk, Lalitpur and started at 10 am (NST). Event planning and details can be found on the event page.

 

Mr. Nikesh Balami, Open Government Data Team Lead of Open Knowledge Nepal started by welcoming and thanking all the participants for joining the event. He explained what open data day is and how it has been celebrated in Nepal during the past few years.

 

After making a bit change in the presentation schedule, Mr. Navin Khadka representing db2map, was welcomed for the first presentation of a day. Mr. Navin described their product db2map and also shared details about their upcoming planning. Db2map helps people to visualize their data in the interactive map of Nepal, by using a simple draging and droping method. He also shared work which they had completed in the past and how it is making an impact.

20160305_104207

Right after the presentation of db2map, Mr. Shubham Ghimire, Volunteer of Open Knowledge Nepal was called on the stage for the presentation of NGOs in Nepal. NGOs in Nepal is the crowdsourced online directory of NGO’s located in map with their contact information. Mr. Ghimire shared how the initiative was started after the April earthquake and how people and NGO’s both benefit from it. At the end of his presentation, he asked participants to contribute by submitting additional information on NGO’s, which they know of within their locality.

20160305_111322

Mr. Chandan Goopta, Co-Founder of The Opnio joined the stage after the presentation of Mr. Shubham. Mr. Goopta presented information about the Android app project of the Nepal Government lead by NITC. This app contains all the information related to the government administration. The idea behind the app is to bridge the gap between citizens and the government by taking the notices, decisions etc made by government accessible to the public. The name of an app was “NepGov Portal” and at the end of his talk, he also asked participants engaged with the project with their own contributions.

20160305_114230

After that Mr. Nikesh Balami from Open Knowledge again joined the stage for his orientation presentation of PublicBodies Nepal. He first presented a little bit about the community “Open Knowledge Nepal” and then shared the whole concept of PublicBodies Nepal, including how the data / information will be presented and how it will be collected. He also notified participants that all of them will be working together on data collection during the Datathon..

20160305_120047

Last but not the least, there was an presentation from Mr. Saroj Dhakal, Consultant for Google, and an active contributor to the Nepali Wikipedia. He presented on an upcoming project named “Open Transits Nepal”. The aim of this project is to collect the data of all transits point used by Nepali Transportation and to release those data in the Open Domain. So that anyone from all around the world can build innovative ideas around this data. After the presentation of Mr. Dhakal, the formal presentation session was completed and the coffee break started.

IMG_20160305_120827

During coffee break, the groups split into the Datathon session. Right after the break Mr. Nikesh who is currently leading PublicBodies Nepal project, briefed participants and shared all the resources with them, which they would need while collecting data. A google form was used for data collection and participants searched and trawled different government websites for one to one data collection. The Datathon was followed by many small lunch and coffee breaks. While going through many websites for the information collection, participants also identified different mistakes and updated information in many government bodies websites, which highlights the topic for further discussion. Some participants contributed the information on local public bodies. At the end of the day, more that 150 information around Nepal Government diverse public bodies was collected by the participants.

20160305_131012

At the end of an event, Mr. Nikesh demonstrated the basic design of the PublicBodies Nepal portal, still in the development, and gathered feedbacks from participants. The event was ended with a group photo. nd formally ends the event by asking everyone for the group photo.

Love “A subject which I can never Pass”

[16th August 2015] haha should I need to say thank you Facebook for reminding it or I need to say fuck you Facebook for bringing that memory back in my mind again :p. I was in a bit confused moments, when suddenly a 2 years old relationship status post pop-ups on my Facebook wall saying it my “memories“. For a moment, I was pretty angry cuz I was not in a relationship with that girl anymore but after sometimes remembering the same moment brings a smile on Face and all those flashbacks came into my mind again.

Those fun moments which I enjoyed while in being a relationship with her was indescribable and unforgeable. Yeah, that’s true, we don’t use to meet lots although her house was too close to mine but virtually we used to talk lots. I used to smile on her each sweet and bitter messages. The best things about her which I like most was her Sweet Smile and a beautiful Hair. Although we are now unknown to each other and we came too far leaving that two years long relationship, but still a small part of my hearts say “That girl was really special for me“. The habits of ours were too different from each-others but we did compromise on different stages. To say it clearly, I can write a book defining a beauty of that girl.

Unfortunately, things didn’t work in a right way always so we moved on. Sometimes I do remember her and regret on all those mistakes I did and sometimes I think about saying sorry too but ……… my ego will come in-between :p hahaha that’s what she and other people think not me. For me, it wasn’t my ego, its all because of my shyness and a habit of letting it go easily. I will hope, someday a time will come where I will receive a chance to tell all those untold story and secrets of mine. and I do agree that I was always weak on the subject of Love but you were the one who brought lots of changes on me. I don’t think it will matter that much now but “You were the best that I would ever have” and will be remembering and missing you always.

At Last:
Fuck you Facebook for bringing those memories back into my minds again!!
