Doin' the Museum Mash
The Eduserv Foundation has a programme of sponsorship and I'm pleased to say that we sponsored the recent Mashed Museum 2008 event, just prior to the UK Museums and the Web Conference 2008 in Leicester. Mike Ellis, a colleague at Eduserv who organised the day, has just released this video of what people got up to - taking museum-related data sources and connecting them together in a range of different ways. In Mike's words, the remit of the day was to:
"...give us an environment free from political or monetary constraints. The focus...is not IPR, copyright, funding or museum politics. Our energies will be channeled into embracing the 'new web': envisaging, demonstrating and (hopefully) building some lightweight distributed applications."
