what will the museum of the future be like?
Thanks to Dr Sian Bayne and Jen Ross for organising such a a great forum on 9 June 2011.
You can read about the Digital Futures forum, including guest speakers and pitches here.
I've also uploaded a summary of the speaker presentations below.
thanks, Angelina - it was wondering to have you there, and such a fascinating day! There's an archive of the tweets from the day, which I'm attaching to this message.
I must also mention the rest of the fab project team who planned and organised these events along with Sian and me:
Rebecca Bailey, Philip Graham and Alan Muirden: Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland
Sarah Saunders: National Galleries of Scotland
Hugh Wallace and Christine McLean: National Museums Scotland
Michela Clari: University of Edinburgh
I wish I could have been there. It sounds like y'all are addressed (and farther along!) many issues that we are grappling with in our curriculum and user-generated content at the Jewish Women's Archive. See, for instance, http://jwa.org/livingthelegacy or http://jwa.org/onthemap .
Very exciting stuff. Thanks for posting.
