The ETX tabletop display that I build while at the Pervasive Technology Labs at IU…I really engaging multi-user in-gallery tool that was VERY popular with visitors to the museum…Failure in my estimation because the novelty of the tool eclipsed any engagement with the art or its meaning and historical context… essentially a fancy video game and an ephemeral experience, not one that lasts or creates a deeper connection with art.

We’ve all heard the saying… “He has a hammer and everything looks like a nail”…Technology isn’t the solution to all problems… actually, its very rarely a good solution all on its ownBy-and-Large CIO’s want to find ways to applying technology to solve the “real” problems of the museum…The sex-appeal of a slick tech solution frequently gets in the way of determining whether or not it really matters.
