Thank you for the welcome! I believe I found you through a link from a blog, but it may have been google. I am an attorney at the U.S. Library of Congress; I spend vast amounts of time working on social media issues. As you know, museums, libraries, and archives are all, in some ways, converging on these issues because so many of our functions overlap. I will be presenting on social media at this April's ALI/ABA Legal Issues in Museum Administration conference in Boston and was looking for exemplary museum social media policies to use in my materials.
Hi, Angelina! I found you through reading Lynda Kelly's online publications and following her SlideShare and PDF writings back here to Museum 3.0. Wonderful to see the sharing in this community. Currently I'm seeking videos of visitor behavior in exhibits (especially intergenerational sharing, family learning) to share with my museum studies students, but due to privacy issues can't find any even for one-time educational use. Any thoughts on how to find videos on visitor behavior?
All is well, Angelina, thank you. I got a bit of a break, but have been trying to keep focussed as I will need to take some time away soon once our next baby arrives.
Our Space has been going well and has certainly seen a significant upturn in numbers since the opening of the Colossal Squid. I look forward to connecting with you and Jerry again soon to discuss some further qualitative possibilities. I am still hoping to be able to make it to the conference in March, but am yet to confirm whether this is going to be a good time to be away. Will keep you posted.
Hi Angelina -- I saw you speak and we hung out a little (with Steven Zucker) for coffee at AVICOM in Ottawa. Also, fyi, I am joining the education dept at the Museum of Modern Art as Director of Digital Learning next week, so I hope we have many more opportunities to meet and talk in the future. I found your talk at AVICOM to be a real inspiration.
hello, and thank you for dropping in with the warm welcome! :)
i found the site through Ning- just ran a search for 'museum.' i was surprised at how many sites there are currently running, but this is by far the most active one. :)
I should be able to confirm by the end of the week. Budget is looking pretty tight over here at the moment, and I am also in the middle of managing the technical handover from Gibson International to Te Papa so will need to think carefully about how to plan for a week away. It is certainly on my list of priorities for the week; I will contact you as soon as I know if it will be a reasonable option.
Thanks for the invite; I appreciate the consideration.
Thanks for the welcome, for sure this site will be very useful for me and for my job, too. I heard from this site in an email I received from Diana Walters, she is the director of the International Museum Studies Master's Programme (Gothenburg University in Sweden). I am an alumni from the programme. Hope you have a great 2009!
Thanks for the welcome :) . I study museums studies and was searching for some internet pages and articles that deals with digital media and found the site coincidentally via a facebook page about digital media.
looking forward to use the site, looks great.
thank you for keeping a personal approach on this new site greeting us all with a welcome. Your project was promoted via the director of the International Museum Studies Program, University of Gothenburg, Sweden where I am now an alumni. I recently got commissioned for an essay by Arts Council Norway so I'm sure I will find this new site useful. Keep up the good work!
I've been keeping an eye on social media stuff in museums for a while. Went to the conf. in Sydney last year, and noticed the ning site shortly after that (probably through the blog of one of the presenters).
Thanks for the reply! I hadn't noticed that Google Translate now includes Norwegian. I'll start using that service as an embeded link for some of my sites, including PEDIMUS. Regarding your question of finding THIS site, It is due to searching for useful interactive media services. I have noticed Museum3.0 many times on a google blog search i keep on my rss reader, but I've known the founder, Lynda Kelly, for years through ICOM
I'm particularly interested in how to get non-techie museum professionals involved in social networking, be it email lists, online groups, blogs or other media. Many of my museum colleagues don't consider digital exchange as REAL communication, responding much better to a printed letter mailed to them than to email or newsgroup messages. And creating a password for logging into a blog or website is foreign for most of them. I notice that you've written about Twitter on several occaisions, but for this sort of person, joining a group like that would be unthinkable.
These problems need to be addressed when establishing new digital media networks. For example, when an organization retires its old website in favor of a new one. How much 'interaction' can one expect to create from the change in technology? I recently wrote about this on Recontextual.
I found it as the rest of the Swedish bunch popping up here these last days. Through the Diana Walters, director of the International Museum Studies Program, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. She's promoting this project, and I understand why - it's great - and much needed!
Greetings from Sweden,
Hi Angelina. I knew about the site from way back - it's one of the homepage links on my website - http:machineculture.wordpress.com.
I'm busy putting together course notesfor the new MA in Digital Heritage at Leicester University (in the UK) and Museum 3.0 (and Nina's Museum 2.0 site) are key waypoints in the study of both (culture sector) Social Networking and the continuing debates about museums, authority and digitality.
