I was working from home yesterday, which was fortunate as I had a phone call from a reporter from the Sunday Times interested in the Leaf Watch app and in crowd sourcing.
She wanted to speak to a “real” user of the app also, which proved more of a challenge than it seemed it should – but then we don’t routinely collect personal information on those using it – so it pretty much had to be someone known to one of the team. However, we got there in the end and they interviewed our star user on the phone and are sending a photographer round this morning!!
The article, the exact nature of which I’m unsure, will feature in the News section this Sunday with any luck.
