  • edsonm Michael Edson, Web and New Media Strategy at Smithsonian Institution Thanks Jim! The work you did in Bristol is exactly the kind of stuff - - the kind of *heroic* stuff - - our institutions should support. I'm glad to know about it, and I'll keep you in mind as we slog through getting this project bootstrapped and funded. I'm also glad to know about the portcities project, which I will definitely look into. All credit for that 'your users are heroes' meme goes to Kathy Sierra ;)
    Cheers!

  • JimMcNeill Sweet TLC Ltd at Sweet TLC Ltd Excellent and exciting presentation.
    As well as a trainer in the not-for-profit sector, I'm also an part time historian, I recently moved to France after living 20+ years in Bristol, UK. In Bristol I worked, unpaid,, as a grassroots social/industrial historian, linking community organisations/groups, Britol City Council and Bristol Museum Service on the issues of the trans-atlantic slave trade, slave trade abolition and Indian Independence celebrations. I have always longed for acedemic institutions, museums, public record offices, etc to publish more (all!) of their resources and papers online through a 'commons'. You've inspired me with hope.
    In the UK there is a site 'Port Cities' (www.portcities.org.uk) which was publicly funded by The New Opportunities Fund and may be of interest to you. It promised a lot when it was set up but (I presume through lack of funding/leadership) has failed to live up to its initial promise and has still to go down the 'commons' route. It may be of interest to you ~ e.g. to compare with/add weight to your strategy for the Smithsonian.
    Kind regards,
    Jim
    PS ~ I love the phrase 'Your users are heros in their own epic journies'
