  • 1. NDF 2009 - Wellington [[edit]] this museum: Wikipedia and the cultural sector
  • 2. If people were passing out paints on the street for free every day, I’m sure there’d be a lot more painters. - Gregg Gillis (GirlTalk) in “Good Copy, Bad Copy” knowledge If people were passing out paints on the street for free every day, I’m sure there’d be a lot more painters. learning
  • 3. Wikipedia is... • 100% F/LOSS, 100% open standards, 100% copyleft • charitable foundation, volunteers, no advertising, no royalties, no permissions, available to use and re-use. GRATIS LIBRE
  • 4. I believe museums and Wikipedia have a lot in common (even if Wikipedia’s only been free to the world since 2001!)
  • 5. We too have scope creep...
  • 6. ...we curate exhibitions...
  • 7. ...and contextualise information...
  • 8. ...we “deaccession” articles...
  • 9. delete or keep?
  • 10. ...and we “deaccession” images...
  • 11. But we’re only just learning how to “play nicely with others”
  • 12. one more thing... Q. Why does Wikipedia have lots of educational resources about American culture but comparatively little from other countries (especially Australia/New Zealand)? (It’s not a language or digital divide problem) A. 1. US is more available 2. US has greater copyright freedom
  • 13. AMERICAN Institutions: • high resolution (inc .tiff) • nuanced re-use policy • no pseudo-TPMs • default is open (esp. gov’t) AUSTRALIAN Institutions: • low resolution .jpg format • blanket claim of “personal and private use only” • (water)marking/zoomify etc. • Default is closed (esp. Crown)
