Museum 2.0

Smithsonian

Smithsonian Castle on the Mall

I just had the privilege of helping Nina K. Simon copyedit her book, The Participatory Museum. The book will be available in March 2010 and will be found here: http://www.participatorymuseum.org/.

I first heard of Ms. Simon when I saw one of presentations on the Smithsonian on Slideshare. I was interested, started following her on twitter ( @ninaksimon ).  One day on twitter, she announced her need for copyeditors, and I immediately DMed a “pick me!” Luckily, I and several others were given the opportunity on a really cool project.

I won’t give anything away–but Nina really gets how museums need to change and how they can change to engage a public that is used to doing more than reading descriptions next to paintings. She has some wonderful ideas on how to enhance experiences at museums and get participants–not visitors–to learn and grow with the institutions.
