  14. 14. NOTE 1: A REVOLUTION IS NOT AN EXERCISE IN CONCENTRIC CIRCLES.
  15. 15. I'm closer to the stodgy traditional museum supporter than to the audiences you are currently trying to reach, but I strongly support your outreach and attempts to involve new communities. It is precisely because of that outreach that I finally became a museum member last year. There was no reason to do so before, since the museum was doing nothing. I still have little occasion to go to the museum, but I'm willing to support it as an important community resource.
  16. 16. NOTE 2: FOCUS ON WHAT MATTERS.
  17. 17. NOTE 3: BE RIGOROUS.
  18. 18. We produce programming Our mission is achieved (therefore give us money)
  19. 19. BRIDGING BONDING EMPOWERING
  20. 20. NOTE 3: EXPLOIT YOUR DISTINCTIVENESS.
  21. 21. NOTE 5: DON’T QUIT.
  22. 22. The average scientist, so far as I can make out, spends almost all his time working on problems which he believes will not be important and he also doesn't believe that they will lead to important problems. -Richard Hamming,“You andYour Research,” 1986 [
