Closing keynote given at the Museum Educators of Southern California Summer Workshop on June 25, 2010. It starts with a nod to John Seely Brown and his wisdom about solution confusion in rapidly changing technological times, then explores the boundaries between traditionally siloed museum departments that are merging/under threat in this new environment. From there a brief history of the role for new media interpretation in museums (art and otherwise), a summary of the Visual Velcro idea, and the role of mobile multimedia in supplying hooks to the hookless. Finally a summary of "Making Sense of Modern Art Mobile," and the implications of taking on publication and distribution of a mobile tour in-house. Ends with future plans and questions about the integration of social media in such publications.
