The international conference Museums and the Web 2010 just finished and it is time to start summarizing the experience. Three important aspects of the conference makes it the no 1 in the world on cultural heritage and internet/digital publication:
1. Organization: The conference is extremely well organized and carried out smoothly
2. Speakers and content: The most up to date and ground breaking projects are presented by professional and competent speakers and usability labs, workshops etc. complement regular sessions.
3. Community: The conference has a growing community that, thanks to social media, is allowed to grow and flourish during the year to come.
Participants come from all over the world, though since the conference takes place in North America it is slightly anglified. It lasts five days, including conference tours and workshops. So starting with the opening plenary in my next post, I will try to cover the parts of the conference that I enjoyed the most.
