The Evolution of the Grid
TLDR
We describe the evolution of grid systems, identifying three generations: first generation systems which were the forerunners of the Grid as we recognise it today; second generation systems with a focus on middleware to support large scale data and computation; and third generation systems where the emphasis shifts to distributed global collaboration, a service oriented approach and information layer issues.

Zooniverse: observing the world's largest citizen science platform
TLDR
We introduce the Zooniverse citizen science project and software framework, outlining its structure from an observatory perspective: both as an observable web-based system in itself, and as an example of a platform iteratively developed according to real-world deployment and used at scale. Expand
