Re–blog from the Guardian.

Collection Catalogue 2.0 & What is a Museum (Now) Anyway?

Re–blog from Smarthistory.

I’ve been following this discussion in the media and I beg for this to happen. Even for me, as an art interested non-scholar, this would be a great resource, to get more educated on and acquainted with art and art theory. And living in Sweden – on the other side of the world from where this museums are located – the probability that will be able to visit them all and view their collections is minimal.

Re–blog from ReadWriteWeb.

The thing I like most about Twitter is the possibility to follow someone without them necessarily following you. I’ll use Twitter as long as that isn’t possible with Facebook. And of course, the longer I use it the more likely I am to stick with it. (That said I use Facebook aswell.)
