After presenting my master's thesis at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications
Program on the future of museums, I was approached by Tom Hennes, director
of Think Studios and editor of Curator Journal, to write an article based on
My article, "Wikipedia Links and Viral Loops," explores what art museums could
learn from the start-up world.
abstract: Exhibitions have social potential, beyond just the prospect of
sharing the experience with a friend standing next to you. We can imagine ways in which the museum
space can link art, objects, experiences, people, and technologies to provide a structure within
which visitors feel comfortable participating. Their own contributions and the museum's skillful use
of social media can result in a more engaging exhibition, not a dumbing down of the content.
