    Expanding the Concept of Museum Visitors
    The dichotomy between the on-site and virtual museum visitor is blurring rapidly, and both audiences have high expectations with regard to online access to services and information. Increasingly, people who are unable to make a physical trip to a museum are able to access its collections and respond and contribute meaningfully to conversations about what may be happening in the physical space, redefining what it means to be a museum patron. Through emerging digital tools, museums are now able to develop long term relationships with visitors that expands beyond the physical walls of the museum and the duration of an exhibition. Acknowledging the needs of a global audience is important in helping to keep museums relevant.

    I agree. SL has issues that make it less than ideal as a museum social space. There are interesting developments with AR and I look forward to seeing where those will lead.

    About Press Clippings Review
    Deb Howe asked a question about who the audience is for the report so she could better approach the press clippings. I wrote her an individual response but she suggested it might be of use to others so I am posting my response here as well.

    The main audience for the Museum Edition turns out to be, generally speaking, anyone in a museum who has to be on either side of a conversation (either the 'splainin or bein 'splained to) about how new technologies might be used in education and interpretation. The goal is for the report to be a place to talk about things that are happening in museums now (first horizon) and things that seem to be in the near future and slightly farther out--we provide descriptions, explanations, examples of how tools/technologies are currently being used in museums, discuss how they might be used by museum, and what (if any) the relevance or utility is for museums. The report is designed to facilitate useful conversation.

    The review of press clippings portion of the exercise is really to get everyone thinking about how technologies and tools and applications are being used prior to beginning the research questions.

    If you click through to the first research question-RQ1- (http://museum.wiki.nmc.org/Horizon+Topics) you will see all the topics that are currently on the table. The main work of the report is the boards conversations about the four research questions: topics, new topics that aren't on the list, trends, and challenges. I find, for myself, that the review of the press clippings doesn't impact my thoughts on the topics and the rankings of the key topics, but it does heavily influence my thinking about trends and challenges.

    Each page has a discussion area-if you look at the upper right hand portion of the screen, and you are in edit mode, you will see the discussion link set in between page and history. If you'd like to open this discussion to the group please do so.

    Tell us a little about yourself!
    Hello all, I am Leonard Steinbach, and I am currently enjoying my second appointment as Visiting Fellow at City University of Hong Kong. There, in the Cultural Heritage and Management Program I am teaching Museum Studies, "Intelligent Heritage" (using advanced technologies in museums) and Cultural (org) Mgmt. (not all simultaneously :) ). I also the The Business of Museums at JHU and consult with museums internationally. Hong Kong is rapidly emerging as one of the world's great art centers, and a immense civic development project in West Kowloon will make it quite a museum center, as well. Interest place in interesting times and pleased to give more of an international perspective than I have been able to do in the past.

    Tell us a little about yourself!
    Hello all. I am Elizabeth Merritt, founding director of the Center for the Future of Museums at the American Alliance of Museums. CFM does scanning and forecasting for the Alliance to help museums adapt to how their environment is changing in coming decades. This is my second time serving on the advisory committee for the Horizon Report, Museum Edition, and I look forward to applying what I learned the first time round!

    Hi everyone! I'm a little late to the introduction 'party'! I work at the Canadian Heritage Information Network, and new technologies research is a large part of my job. I'm really happy to be taking part in this very important project!

    Tell us a little about yourself!
    Hi, everybody. I am Marsha Semmel, Director, Strategic Partnerships, at the Institute of Museum and Library Services, a federal agency that supports building the capacity of museums and libraries to serve their communities. In 2009, we produced "Museums, Libraries, and 21st Century Skills," and we are now working with the MacArthur Foundation on a project to support teen-focused learning labs in libraries and museums around the country. Great to be part of this important project again. Thanks for including me.
