This year’s Museums and the Web conference will be held in San Francisco from April 11th to the 14th. I’ll be conducting two half-day workshops, Museum Mashups and Real Science 2.0 on the first day of the conference. I’ll share some of the materials from those workshops on this blog following the conference.
Also, I’ll be presenting The American Image: The Photographs of John Collier Jr. with Catherine Baudoin from the Maxwell Museum and Beth Maloney who was the primary writer and education specialist on the project. We’ll be showing the site on Saturday during the demo session. (On a separate note this site was recently mentioned in Ten Cool Examples of Nonprofits Using Flickr on Blogher.)
On Friday April 13th, Seb Chan from Powerhouse Museum and myself will be presenting Radical Trust: The State of the Museum Blogosphere. Our paper should be published by the end of the week on the website for the Museums and the Web conference. The paper includes findings from a survey of nearly 50 individuals who operate museum blogs. Museums and the Web just started posting papers yesterday check out the speakers list and you can see what’s available.
Seb and I have been asked about organizing a meeting of museum bloggers. We were thinking that Friday after our session, we might all go for an extended lunch (perhaps 11:30 to 1:00 or so). For convenience sake, it is probably best to meet somewhere in the hotel. Bloggers, please let us know if you’re interested.
It should be a great conference and it’s always good to get back to our old home town. I hope to see some of you there.
