    • Speed the Plow: Rapid Capture Digital Workflow MCN 2009 Annual Conference Portland Oregon November 12, 2009 Tuesday, November 17, 2009 Welcome. In researching the origins of the phrase “Speed the Plow”, which until recently, for me, meant the Mamet play, I came across some interesting facts, which tempts me to over use the metaphor. God Speed the Plow: "God speed the plough, 'a wish for success or prosperity,' was originally a phrase in a 15th-century song sung by ploughmen on Plough Monday, the first Monday after Twelfth Day, which is the end of the Christmas holidays, when farm laborers returned to the plough. On this day ploughmen customarily went from door to door dressed in white and drawing a plough, soliciting 'plough money' to spend in celebration.

    • Tuesday, November 17, 2009 David Mamet play-- the one that Jeremy Piven famously quit from due to Merecury poisioning. Speed the Plow: from Wikipedia—Hollywood mid-level producers Bobby Gould and Charlie Fox engage in a verbal boxing match centered on the eternal debate of art versus money.

    • We will cover.... Tuesday, November 17, 2009 For us, the digitization of large collections may often seem like plowing acres of land, and the theme of this panel is to explore ways to do this. What we will cover: 1. Normal and rapid capture may not be all that different 2. Detailed equipment set-ups used on our case studies will be detailed in handouts 3. Not to be underestimated, when you say “speed” to a conservator it makes them nervous 4. I think you will notice that all of our case studies had a detailed planning component.

    • Getty DOP Backlog project status... Unanticipated delays Careful scrutiny can uncover unanticipated problems Cataloguing issues sidetracked the project This is positive Tuesday, November 17, 2009
    • Conclusions Large collections can by their very nature be more chaotic and less completely catalogued Beginning a Rapid Capture project may uncover problems that must be dealt with either before or during the project Workflow needs to be nimble and adaptable Planning is the most important element Tuesday, November 17, 2009
