  1. 1. @MobileMaggie http://www.slideshare.net/MobileMaggie
  2. 2. Citizen science is the involvement of non-scientists in scientific research, to tasks perform such as observation, measurement, identification or computation.
  3. 3. Citizen Cyberscience makes use of technology tools and platforms, such as the Web and mobile phones, to enable crowd- sourced scientific research
  4. 4. Open Hardware, the Internet of Things, and the MakerMovement are opening up many new possibilities for measurement, data collection and computation
  5. 5. Extreme Citizen Science puts the tools for Science into the hands of Citizens, who craft their own projects, in order to make a direct impact on their world.
  6. 6. Just as the web is a democracy, with knowledge and know-how openly shared, Citizen Science is also a democratic movement, requiring equal openness.
  7. 7. It is crucial that the resulting Research be shared openly and accessibly, both in full and in layman’s terms
  8. 8. It is equally crucial that the Data be shared openly and accessibly, and should ideally be API’dand linked
