eMuse Me – Can Web 2.0 Break Down the Walls of Museums?

The final votes are not in on the sxsw panels but one of them caught my eye. It directly relates to Houston because we don’t exactly encourage citizen media in our museums.

eMuse Me: Can Web 2.0 Break Down the Walls of Museums?

Is Web 2.0 welcome in museums? Should you be allowed encouraged to tag

or does it cheapen and distract from the museum experience? Explore

(steve.museum) online interactives, blogging and delicious handheld
content.
