Well, it’s on! The date’s set, the venue’s booked, and we’re planning to Show Off! Our latest Drinking About Museums experiment in participatory, informal, after-hours professional development/networking is two weeks away. Of our ten slots, we’ve already filled half! If you’ve got something you’re excited about sharing with an enthusiastic group of museum types in a laid back, casual setting, now is the time to chime in!

The roster includes:

Brad Larson, who will describe his Museum Puppet Throwdown experiment in Providence.    http://www.bradlarson.com/

Kellian Adams, Boston’s favorite museum gamemaker, who will talk about some of the issues around location based game.   http://www.greendoorlabs.com/index.html

Marc Check and Ben Wilson, who will have to speak at least 2000 millilampsons to cover all the cool things they’re working on, like location aware technologies, 3-D multi-touch interactive environments,  and deconstruction interface technologies like Kinect/Leap/and other hacks.   http://www.mos.org/

Catrina Hill, who will talk about museums and diversity. http://www.pem.org/

John Overholt, who may talk about books. One can never tell. http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/houghton/

Ed Rodley,who will be freshly back from Cleveland (City of Light, City of Magic) and dying to talk about his experiences at Gallery OneMONA, and immersion in museums.   http://www.pem.org/

Jeffery Jacobson, who will tell us about his NSF-funded “Living Forest” interactive environment, as well as group activities and engagement in interactive domes. http://www.publicvr.com/

Rob Landry, who may want to extoll the virtues of Responsive Design, or putting a collection online, or how to build a mobile tour publishing app using open source tools. http://www.pleinairinteractive.com/ 

Mic Billingsley, who will try not lay too much semiotics on you as he explores minds, museums and misunderstandings.  http://www.pem.org/

  1. This is something I’d love to see/participate in, but 6pm on a Wednesday is never going to be possible for me (and I assume a fair number of others who don’t live/work in Boston). Any chance that next time this happens it could be at 7 on a Friday?

  2. Where are you at, Lucinda? We’re game to try anything. We settled on a weeknight since so many people had plans on weekends. Tues-Weds seem to be our best nights thus far for attendance.

  3. Hello all. I work at PEM with Ed and (if poked) I’ll probably talk about a presentation I’m working on for the NEMA conference on museums and diversity.
