Bloggers meeting

Monday, March 26th, 2007

Dear museums bloggers, Jim Spadaccini propose to meet blogger at Museums and The Web conference in San Francisco. This will be a fantastic occasion, I’m very sad that I can’t be there, but another occasion will be AAM Conference in Chicago, in May and I will be there.  From AAM Boston, last year, I start the tentative to put together museums blogger with the first list of museums blogs in my blog, this goal was completed by Jim (Jim did you present a paper in Chicago?).

Consider that Museums and the Web is an event more oriented to colleagues inside IT sector, AAM conference is an event more generalist, where there are more people involved and more colleagues that need to be aware about museum blogs. So Chicago will be a good occasion to make more people aware.

Can happen in a museum?

Saturday, May 20th, 2006

Yesterday Apple open doors of new store at Fifth avenue. From the night before people create a line to access to the Apple Store. At 5pm all the plaza was full of people, till 1am there was person in line. Without any advertising, this the force of evangelism…I write early in this blog about importance of evangelism for museums.

Can happen in a museum what happens at Apple Store yesterday? In Boston at AAM Conference I attend a session about PR before grand opening of museums. 18, 7 months of works before the opening, million dollars of expense…

Google Calendar

Thursday, April 13th, 2006

A new intersting tool from Google

Google Calendar

I just start to learn how it work but as a first impression for example will be very good for our blogs and for museums that can share in easy way calendars of events.

UPDATE (directly from Google Blog)

Last week, there was Google Calendar. This week, developers can start writing code that uses it. Enter the Google Calendar data API, which can be used to write external applications that query, create, and update Google Calendar events, so they’re available to Google Calendar users or other API-enabled applications.

My note: this change all things, complete interactivity between museums web sites and Google Calendar
