#CILDC : Libraries, Archives and Museums: Collaboration on a Large Scale, part 2

Merete Sanderhoff (@msanderhoff) is presenting via video and Skype from Denmark.

Mobile Synergies
Using mobile devices to open up the experience of viewing art

All public documents content is freely shareable
Use an existing platform
Target users take part in creating them experience

A simple shell that allows you to browse content (art) and share comments.  Uses/connects with twitter.
Why twitter?  Democratic and multilingual space.

Museums and artists re willing to adopt open licenses.
Users are willing to adopt the open approach, but may not be willing to contribute.
Links to rich content pulls attention away from viewing the art.
People might prefer an audio guide.
How can the project become scalable?
