While I was at the Open University I started three CS projects: Evolution MegaLab, iSpot and Treezilla. At the University of Edinburgh we are now building the infrastructure for Edinburgh Cityscope that will turn the whole city and its environs into a pervasive learning environment. This will provide a platform for an unlimited number of Citizen Science and Digital Humanities projects.
