Museums and Technology
The initial listing of news on how technology is used in museums was culled from a variety of sources, including the New York Times, PC World, Technology Review, InfoWorld, Wired, etc.
We'd love to see your clippings here as well! Please use the edit link below to add more items to the list (see format notes), or to add comments on how or why you think these technologies or developments may be or may not be important. As is the convention throughout the Horizon.Museum wiki, we ask you to identify items you think are of high interest to us, as I have here [LJ], as a means of helping start the sifting process.
