Scott’s research explores the social effects of media technologies, with particular attention to their impact on the social relations of space and time, the formation of identity, and the dynamics of cities. One of his investigations Participatory Public space:  A right to the networked city (2012-14) explores the interplay between technology, policy, culture and user-led innovation in the context of networked public space.  He is currently completing a book GEOMEDIA: networked cities and the politics of public space for Polity press.
