This slide deck accompanies a paper written for Museums and the Web 2014 in Baltimore. The paper is here: http://mw2014.museumsandtheweb.com/paper/the-epiphany-project-discovering-the-intrinsic-value-of-museums-by-analysing-social-media/ and describes the lead-in to the project. The slides show the initial findings from the first three months of project development work, during which data from Twitter about a specific museum (Belper Mill) was captured and put in a Neo4J Graph Database.

The slides will be very hard to follow without the notes, which don't seem to be happening on SlideShare at the moment, but if you download the presentation and view it in Powerpoint, you ought to be able to get more of an idea what this is all about.
