It’s getting to be that time, time to head off to the annual Museum Computer Network conference in Dallas. Very exciting! This year’s crop of sessions and workshops looks to be really interesting, with plenty of new voices!
As part of my preparations for the event, I’ve been going over my pre-conference checklist. Outrageous costume for Ignite? Check! List of work conversations I’ll try to cram in around the sessions? Check. Identify the five new people I mean to talk to, and what I want to ask them? Check and check! This year, I also have a more general question. This is where you come in, dear readers.
I was one of the participants in the NAEA Peer2Peer Hangout today on digital mindsets. It was a rocking good time, with some great speakers. You should check it out! Anyway, one of the questions had to do with looking outside the sector for inspirations for digital projects. I talked about Snowfall and Bear 71 as sites I thought did a great job of exploring rich stories with a variety of assets. This question also jibed nicely with a question I’d been rolling around in my head about the next version of PEM’s website. Namely, what does a good museum website look like in 2014? So my question for you is this:
What are your favorite online destinations of 2014, museum or not, and why?
