Museums, the Web, and Power

P1100858

This morning, I just wanted to highlight a post by Australian Suse Cairns on her blog Museum Geek, “Do new technologies democratise museum collections, or reinforce conservative values?” 

She raises a number of thoughtful questions about whether the bright, shiny world of technology and digitization is just reinforcing conservative museum beliefs and structures.  I hadn’t thought of museum power in these terms, but it’s definitely expanded my view.  Take a read and let us know what you think.
