Digital Cultural Content Forum

Earlier this year, I (and about half a dozen others) presented at the Digital Cultural Content Forum in Montreal. Presentations from the session are now available online. Museums, libraries, and archives are reacting to the development of the participative web. Museums, for example, are beginning to use blogs to provide a narrative of a soldier’s letters to his “sweet heart” back home (see Miss Griffis), the use of tagging for visitors to label virtual artifacts, and so on. The forum revealed some fascinating work being done in traditional content-based organizations as they attempt to increase audience engagement.
