Mashed Museum 2008

  1. 1. Mashed Museum 2008 what we did and how we did it
  2. 2. You are invited to a day of coding, thinking and idea sharing with a select group of museum colleagues. Mashed Museum 2008 will be a day of free-form thinking and doing with only enough structure to make sure we actually get something out of the (considerable) collective brainpower in the room. The day aims to give us an environment free from political or monetary constraints. The focus of the day is not IPR, copyright, funding or museum politics. Our energies will be channeled into embracing the "new web": envisaging, demonstrating and (hopefully) building some lightweight distributed applications. Collectively, participants will: ..demonstrate that such applications can be built quickly, easily and often for free the power of opening up content and data via API's or web services ...share ideas and concepts without constraining them new tools, sources of data and content ...have fun! We hope to provide a relaxed, safe, creative environment away from the office which will give participants a way to think and work free from constraints. It's a webjamunconferencehackdaythingy!
