This site serves as an example conference proceedings site from the Museum Computer Network Conference held in Atlanta, in November 2011.

We created the site as part of the PressForward initiative to experiment with new modes of digital publishing, such as in the Journal of Digital Humanities. Sheila Brennan, Joan Fragaszy Troyano, Sasha Hoffman, and Jeri Wieringa from the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media put this site together as an example of an aggregated Conference Proceedings.

This site was not commissioned by MCN nor is it officially approved of by MCN.

Introduction

What are We Doing in this Space?

The Editors

How often have you attended conferences (excluding Museums and the Web) and then a few weeks later, after the Twitter hashtag disappears from Tweetdeck, you wished you had the URL to review a presenter’s slides, paper, or video they shared during …

"Some people noted that my presentation contained references to the hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan. Why the Wu? I choose them because they are an extraordinary example of the benefits of working on projects as a team. Here are seven tips from the Wu-Tang way of working that we can learn from."
Joaquin Ortiz


"We often do not talk about the ways that museums approach their interpretation differently, and therefore might have different concerns about and needs from digital media."
Sheila Brennan

"Full text autocomplete is sort of the holygrail, IMO, but we can't be as smart as Google."
Nate Solas

"If we're stretched so thin to keep our doors open that we end up lowering our standards, then how can we create those awesome, inspiring experiences that is going to create the next generation of museum goers."
Mia Ridge
