Re: [MCN-L] Assistance needed with ULAN data

2019-08-17 Thread Nik Honeysett
This is a great left-turn from a ULAN question. Both the point of view of OSS 
and the empowerment role of IT rather than as gatekeeper is fairly ubiquitous 
in our field, and while I know this comes from frustration, (and I am guilty) 
critique and antagonism, I’ve learned is not the answer. How do we engage and 
educate these folks?

Re: [MCN-L] Custom urls vs "brand" urls for microsites

2018-03-13 Thread Nik Honeysett
Just agreeing with Douglas, and, Jewel, you’re thinking is correct. Your brand 
is your museum not your exhibition (even if it is "special"), you just need to 
make sure your home page reflects your marketing activity.

Re: [MCN-L] Preparing for quickly approaching GDPR deadline

2018-02-07 Thread Nik Honeysett
Hmm, still very skeptical that “territoriality" applies here: processing is 
related to the “monitoring” in the EU of the “behavior” of data subjects as 
their behavior takes place within the EU - from a much more informed 
interpretation which seems to indicate also that unless we are proactively 
selling to an EU country, we’re not under GDPR:

Interested to understand how various legal counsels in interpret this though.

My understanding is that GDPR is enforced based on the location of the 
transactee at the time of the transaction, irrespective of where the server is. 
So, if someone buys something from your website from Blighty, then GDPR is in 
effect for you and their PII, but if that person physically buys from your 
store, then GDPR does not apply.

[MCN-L] Collections Management Survey Invitation

2018-01-16 Thread Nik Honeysett
Dear MCNers,

Sending out a second call to complete our collections management survey which 
can be found here: http://bit.ly/cms-survey <http://bit.ly/cms-survey> please 
take the survey or forward to a colleague who will.

To refresh, the study is on behalf of LYRASIS and funded by the Andrew W. 
Mellon Foundation, to investigate the technology landscape and evolving tactics 
and strategy around collections management in museums.

We’re uncovering some very interesting stuff, and I’ll share a visualization of 
a sample set of digitization information in a variety of museums.

https://www.bpoc.org/assets/img/projects/Digitization.png 
<https://www.bpoc.org/assets/img/projects/Digitization.png>

The colors in each add up to 100% and represent the following:

No analogue or digital representation
Analogue only
Digitized low-res only
Digitized hi-res

Can you guess which category the graph is sorted by?

Please take the survey to maximize our dataset - http://bit.ly/cms-survey

[MCN-L] Collections Management Study

2017-11-27 Thread Nik Honeysett
Dear MCNers,

I’m looking to source your wisdom, advice and input.

You may have seen the recent press release from LYRASIS (bit.ly/lyrs-cms) 
regarding their award from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to study collections 
technology in museums. BPOC will be partnering with Ithaka S+R to investigate 
the technology landscape and evolving tactics and strategy around collections 
management. As institutions become more digitally savvy and our audience's 
expectations of access and interaction with our collections changes, are our 
collections management technologies appropriately supporting us or keeping pace?

The study will use both surveys and interviews to garner a field-wide 
understanding of how scope and requirements for collections management and 
access have or are changing. I’m hoping you will participate.

If you have any thoughts, advice or wisdom of how these requirements are 
changing we’d be really interested to hear them, either directly to me or 
through the listserv. What are the most burning topics to pursue? What are the 
questions we should be answering? Where are we succeeding and where are we 
failing? Do you have war stories or success stories that you can share?

When we have our survey ready, I’ll be sending it out to this list and hoping 
that you’ll participate. If you'd be willing to participate in a more in-depth 
discussion, please let me know too.

Thank you in advance.

Agreed, seems thinly-veiled, and some advice to emerging vendors that this list 
is for informative, instructive advice or help. Not only that, but these kind 
of emails are likely to be counterproductive to endearing your services to this

Re: [MCN-L] VR vendors?

2017-08-10 Thread Nik Honeysett
We partner with GURU here in Balboa Park on a number of projects - a wayfinding 
park-wide app with some points-of-interest AR experiences overlaying historic 
photos of key buildings and gardens, and the San Diego Museum of Art’s App with 
a couple of awesome AR experiences - the "Open Jaw of Awe" came out of the 
responses we got on those. The SDMA App and others are available for download.

Their VR pilots are excellent which they’ve demo’ed at various conferences. 
They have a Step into the Painting concept which literally does what its says, 
and when you turn around to look out at the world from within the painting, the 
world is rendered in the style of the painting you’re in. Has to be 
experienced, er… which is the whole point. They’ll be in Pittsburgh.

(Full disclosure, I’m on GURU's board)

I just want to put a thought out there on the idea of people "looking for

people actually opening up the list of available networks on their devices.
I think our devices are constantly scanning for networks, and each scan
might result in a ping to our wireless systems.

For example, the way Location Services generally works (if i'm not
mistaken) is if we have wifi enabled on our devices, they've constantly
scanning for networks to triangulate our location. The more accurate the
location is as we move, the more scanning our devices need to do. So I'm
not surprised that 75% of mobile users are "looking for free wifi." I think
that's more a reflection of our devices constantly scanning wifi networks.

Thanks again for the thoughts and insights. This is a city park, and anybody on 
this list who works with a city on landmark spaces will know I'd have to offer 
up my first born to do any kind presence detection, they’re as bad as art 
museum directors when it comes to putting things into spaces where they 
shouldn’t be. How do you set up a line of sight wireless bridge when you can’t 
have anything in sight...

Right, zoning in on an accurate measurement is my goal, and that’s a good point 
about focusing on smaller scale situations that might inform the larger number.

You mentioned an event with 350K people. Hopefully there are other such events

least allow you to see if your numbers agree with or wildly deviate from the

Furthermore, can you use sampling tecniques to do this on the cheap? I'm sure 
you know more popular sections VS not. In fact, you could use existing wifi to 
tell you this. so, in certain areas to do the necessary leg work, but then use 
that to feed a larger model to validate and/or debunk your 12M number.

In all seriousness, if your goal is not production, but rather limited data 
collection, is it out of the question to put conventional (even battery 
powered) presence detection devices in a few key places where you have at least 
one other form of ground truth e.g. a camera?

My goal with any/all of these suggestions is to simply find out, eventually, 
which metric has higher accuracy.

I am happy to be wrong, but with that many "bags of mostly water", I just don't 
buy that a wifi-based counting system that relies on back-scatter and 
reflection counting, with some phase calculations thrown in, is going to be 
worth anything other than maybe order of magnitude.

Take care,

Sina - that took 3 minutes? You’re awesome. Many thanks...

Bruce - this is kind of thing I’m looking for - many thanks.

Obviously, my friend is me. The accepted park visitorship is 12 million - no 
idea where this comes from. Institutional attendance (museums and zoo) reports 
in at about 6.5 million but there is double, triple and quadruple counting 
hiding in these numbers. I’m interested in whether the 12 million is accurate, 
so yes, interested in the joggers, dog walkers and picnickers, etc. I’m 
inclined to think the 12 million is inflated significantly.

Its Ruckus equipment and we tried counting all devices in the area, but the 
differential between users on the wifi and devices wasn’t very big, so I didn’t 
trust it. However, if 75% of smartphone users are looking for free wifi (I 
thought it would be much lower), then maybe I should take another look at that 
number.

We serve an average of 100K users per month on the wifi and tomorrow and 
saturday is our signature event when we’ll “officially" see 350K people in the 
park - no idea where this number comes from either, but like to support it it 
or debunk it.

Thanks for the thoughts and data much appreciated. And while I’d love to use 
some drones, we’re on the SAN flight path and only a mile from the airport.

When I googled it now, I notice casual references to outdoors. What I don't 
know is whether the team did further work, or whether they are simply echoing 
the original paper's comments, but not properly accounting for in-door VS

Nik — 

It’s worth reaching out to these folks: 
<http://www.ece.ucsb.edu/~ymostofi/HeadCountingWithWiFi 
<http://www.ece.ucsb.edu/~ymostofi/HeadCountingWithWiFi>>. They may be able to 
give you the coarse estimator that you’re looking for even if they’ve patented 
their refined version.

Aside from that, This survey out of the UK in 2014. 
<http://purple.ai/latest-survey-people-use-wifi-public-places/ 
<http://purple.ai/latest-survey-people-use-wifi-public-places/>> did a survey 
which indicates ~75% of people are looking for & using wifi. (mileage may vary, 
no idea the size of n or how biased the survey pool may have been)

Additionally, the Wireless Broadband Association indicates that by 2017, 60% of 
carrier network traffic will be offloaded to Wi-Fi. And Pew Research last year 
indicates that 68% of adults have smartphones. 
<http://www.pcworld.com/article/2999631/phones/pew-survey-shows-68-percent-of-americans-now-own-a-smartphone.html
 
<http://www.pcworld.com/article/2999631/phones/pew-survey-shows-68-percent-of-americans-now-own-a-smartphone.html>>
 (and another study that I can’t find at the moment suggests that 90% of 
smartphones have Wifi which seems low to me, but we’re quibbling at this point).

So. 2/3 of the population have smartphones, 75% of those smartphone users are 
looking for free wifi, stringing together a few studies and looking at some 
tough commonality.

That gets you somewhat close for estimate purposes.

And then validate with a small tracking study and / or the UCSB folks in the 
first link.

[MCN-L] Tapping the MCN Brain Trust

2016-12-01 Thread Nik Honeysett
I have a friend who runs a large, free public-access wifi network in a park. 
The network requires no authentication. There is modest promotion of the 
availability of free-wifi. He’s looking to estimate the total number of 
visitors to the park from the number of unique clients he sees on his wifi 
network. Despite the fact that a significant proportion of visitors have their 
smartphone with them, only a certain percentage will appear on the network due 
to a variety of factors including phone settings and a user checking to see 
whether there’s wifi available.

What percentage of the total visitor number does the MCN brain trust think he 
will see on his network? Or maybe put another way, what percentage of the 
population looks for free wifi?

Job Posting: Director of Sales, Guru. San Diego.

Tired of selling boring products or services? Want to achieve goals for 
projects you actually care about? Want to work with a team of passionate and 
creative individuals on projects that make a cultural impact? Do you like to 
travel?

If you answered yes to all of the above, we want to hear from you.

Guru is a group of talented and creative people who believe in the power of 
cultural conversation, in the beauty of art and culture, and the personal 
growth that results from education. We seek to change the way people interact 
with their world by providing a connection to learning through exploration and 
interaction.

Guru is in the business of creating unforgettable cultural experiences that 
entertain, educate and drop jaws. We use the device that every museum, aquarium 
and zoo visitor has, their smartphone, to create meaningful engagement, 
one-of-a-kind augmented and virtual reality experiences, and content that will 
change how visitors learn and understand our cultural world and living 
collections. This San Diego startup has exploded onto the cultural venue scene 
and is experiencing rapid national and international growth. We need a talented 
Director of Sales with the passion and drive to match ours - help us change the 
way visitors experience attractions, arts and culture.

Description
As Guru’s Director of Sales you will be a key player in our commercial success 
through identifying and nurturing new contacts, maintaining customer 
relationships in an ever-growing network, and negotiating and delivering 
contracts. The long sales cycle of our industry will demand the patience of a 
saint, the stamina of a long-distance runner and the diplomacy of an 
international politician.

The successful candidate will be both self-starter and team player; comfortable 
interacting with all levels of client staff; adept at building and maintaining 
meaningful relationships; and have prior experience in managing, growing and 
maintaining a sales team. Initially you will be solely responsible for 
prospecting, qualifying and closing leads, but will work to quickly establish a 
sales team to drive and support our rapid national and international growth. 
Guru is a tech-savvy company, passionate and knowledgeable about the 
opportunities of technology in the cultural and attraction space, that’s what 
we need in our Director of Sales. Ideally, this position will be based in San 
Diego but we are willing to consider a remote office for the right candidate. 
You will travel often to Asia, New Zealand, Australia and Europe.

Working with Guru’s CEO you will:
Develop and execute a strategic plan to achieve sales targets and to expand the 
company’s customer base;
Effectively communicate the value proposition through proposals, presentations 
and other channels at your disposal;
Define, hit and exceed annual sales targets within assigned territories and 
accounts;
Build and maintain strong, long-lasting customer relationships;
Contribute to the general advancement and success of the organisation by 
accomplishing related tasks as needed;
In time, develop national and international sales staff by recruiting, 
selecting, orienting, and training employees;
In time, manage national sales staff job results by counseling and disciplining 
employees; planning, monitoring, and appraising job results.
You will have:
Seven years of proven sales experience, consistently meeting or exceeding 
targets; driving the sales process from plan to close;
An engaging, effective and articulate presentation style able to communicate 
and influence credibly, trust and the value of our products and services to all 
levels of a client organization;
The proven ability to articulate the distinct aspects of our products and 
services and overcome customer trepidation;
Fluency in relevant industries and trends.
You will receive:
A competitive salary and benefits package;
Daily satisfaction working in a fast-paced and fun environment, and thank the 
day you responded to this posting.

If we are talking only about operating budget, Nik's figures match what
I've learned over the years. At Mia, we are at about that 5% figure.
Capital is a different story. Technology accounts for more than 30% of the
Capital budget year-over-year, and can vary widely. That figure is then
adjusted according to how much fundraising we can accomplish to offset the
hit on the museum's funds.
In other words, it's complicated!

We switched to shopify.com last year and I'm pretty happy with it. Very,
very nice admin features, API, and good functionality. Doesn't integrate
with our POS system but it's light years better than the old system that
did, so it's worth the extra admin overhead of syncing stock.

 Our museum sells photographic reproductions, and we have a retail store; we
 want to add ecommerce to our website to increase revenue. I wonder if there
 are reputable companies out there providing a flexible shopping cart

[MCN-L] Wireless in public spaces

2012-01-25 Thread Nik Honeysett
Sam,
 
We have free access at the Getty in public spaces and selected galleries as 
part of our Google Goggles rollout. We intend to make access ubiquitous in all 
galleries over the coming months. Like SFMOMA, we have a tc accept screen for 
liability issues and we have a DHCP release after 20 mins of inactivity.
 
But our biggest challenge is the tc accept screen. Because its an app, any 
visitor who comes in and tries to Goggle a work will have an unhappy experience 
unless they have first opened a browser and accessed our network. Legal won't 
budge on the tc, IT are unable to packet-sniff to filter out browser vs app 
network requests, so our workaround has been to train Security to approach any 
visitors waving a smartphone around and check whether they have opened a 
browser - this has actually been very successful.

Subject: [MCN-L] Wireless in public spaces

Folks,

It seems like a lot of people are talking about, or in fact retrofitting their 
old(er) buildings for wireless connectivity...
I wonder if people might share their thoughts on the subject and, if so, maybe 
these questions might be useful as a starting point.

1.  Are you providing free wireless Internet access to your visitors?  
[Ballate, Leo]  Yes If
so:

- Are visitors required to authenticate to the wireless network, or is the 
network open?  [Ballate, Leo]  The network is open, but users must accept our 
terms and conditions of use (see attached) before they can use the public wifi.
What considerations went into this decision?[Ballate, Leo]  We offered 
unfettered wifi access for a number of years. However, it was time to make sure 
we had t  c to protect us from any legal liability that could arise from 
public use of our wifi network.

- Are visitor wireless sessions limited in any way:  duration limits, 
throughput limits, access restrictions?[Ballate, Leo]  No, however, our DHCP 
server issues leases for only 30 minutes.

- Do you provide SLA / service guarantees?[Ballate, Leo]  No (see attached 
terms and conditions)

- What level of support (if any) do you provide to your visitors and their 
personal devices?[Ballate, Leo]  None

2.  Do you support additional wireless networks at your institution for use by 
staff or systems (security, VoIP, etc.)?[Ballate, Leo]  Yes, we expose our 
internal lan (WPA2), but do not broadcast the SSID. We allow a handful of 
museum owned devices to access our internal lan via Wifi. We change the 
password for the internal wifi lan on a regular basis. We are investigating 
local certificates to beef up security when accessing the internal lan via wifi.

3.  Which equipment manufacturer did you select for the wireless network:
Cisco, Aruba, Aerohive, Meraki, etc.?[Ballate, Leo]  Extreme networks.

Any comments will be appreciated![Ballate, Leo]  Good luck on your research and 
let us know how it goes!

[MCN-L] Image Sizes

2009-05-05 Thread Nik Honeysett
This reminds me of a classic example in the music industry in the early
90's. Blue Note Record's legal team came across a 12 single called The
Band Played the Boogie featuring an illegal sampling of Grant Green's
Sookie Sookie, enjoying a huge underground following. Rather than
pursue a suit, Blue Note hired the group and gave them access to their
full back catalogue. The resulting release was Blue Note's first
platinum-selling album (Us3 - Hand on the Torch).
 
So, put your images out there, wait for someone to figure out how to
make money from them, then hire them.
 
(wish me luck with getting that through our general counsel).
 
-nik

 Stanley Smith SSmith at getty.edu 5/5/2009 1:20 PM 

If you think that your images are not out there, you are mistaken.  At
the Getty we have taken pains to manage how our images migrate from
our
walls, but a quick Google image search of ?Irises? and ?Van Gogh? will
yield hundreds of hits (the most hilarious of which is a line of
dog-themed ceramic plates with the painting serving as background to
visages of various breeds).  This is not too concerning, as the
artwork
itself is in the public domain, and Bridgeman v. Corel says that we
can?t claim photographic copyright?so all?s fair in love and war. 

Speaking of Bridgeman, though, I recently tried to order a print of
the
same painting from Bridgeman?s website. I am conducting research for a
possible print-on-demand service at the Getty --(yes Will, if there is
money to be made we should be the ones making it!) -- I wanted to see
what other commercial ventures were doing with our images?mostly a
quality survey.  I foolish used my Getty mailing address when placing
the order (a 20 x 24 archival inkjet print on fine-art paper for about
$70).  Two days later I got an email from Bridgeman stating: 

?We regret to inform you that your order of 'Irises,1889' (supplier 
code BAL40070) cannot be processed due to the transparency being  
unsuitable for reproduction. The Bridgeman Art Library have advised 
that the quality of this particular print would be compromised by 
enlarging it beyond the image size and as a result we have been 
forced
to cancel and refund your order. The image will be removed from our
site
within the next couple of days to avoid any future  disappointment.

Even Bridgeman was nervous about copyright issues!  Irises was removed
from their website the next day.  There is really no possible way to
prevent your images from getting out in the world.  Those CD?s or
transparencies that you have sent for scholar requests or publications
over the years are still out there, and can fall into any number of
hands.  Current imaging software is very good at ?rezing? up small
image
image files into ones that can be used for print.  Current stitching
software can easily reconstruct Zoomify panes into a very high
resolution image.  Even if you disable the ability to right-click an
image for download, nothing can stop someone from using a screen grab.

The best we can do, I think, is to make sure that recipients of our
images know exactly what their usage rights are.  But we should not be
surprised when some people ignore our directives. The PLUS coalition
has
a great product that helps track and enforce image rights, and they
are
developing a profile that is specific to museums. 

A couple of years ago I was exploring other ways to track our images
in
the ?cloud?.  As a test, I gave a company called Idee a set of 400
jpegs
of paintings from our collection.  They had developed software that
crawls the web looking for images based not on text data, but on the
images themselves.  The results of this test were astonishing?they had
hundreds of hits.  Ultimately it was not technology that we were
willing
to adopt?one reason was who has time to sent hundreds of
cease-and-desist letters to obscure websites, some of which may have
had
the images legitimately?

[MCN-L] Form submission software and time-lapse video

For the form submission, I think this pretty much does what you need:
http://www.SeaGreenSoftware.com 
 
-nik

 Perian Sully psully at magnes.org 1/22/2009 8:54 AM 
We were having very similar problems. I had set up an HTML-based form,
as well as a PDF form, but neither were working. I finally got the PDF
form to work, but I eventually realized that the HTML form required a
mailman program on our web host (Yahoo, at the moment). Yahoo's mailman
wouldn't allow us to custom-set the email address the form was supposed
to go to. If you have a less-draconian hosting service, or host
internally, it's actually pretty easy (I think...) to use their mailman.
You would just have to specify the location of the mailman and the email
address the form should go to. (Hopefully someone with more info about
this process can confirm or deny my rumors...!)

We finally ended up using Google Docs and their form-building tool. It
uses an Excel-like format to collect the responses, and you can download
the responses into Excel. Pretty cool! I'm likely to create another one
this week for exactly what you're planning to do.

If you end up using a PDF, you can specify that the responses get sent
back to you in an XML or CSV format which can be imported into Excel.
You'll need Adobe Acrobat to create the form, however.

Good luck!

You might look at and play around with Google Documents as an

Subject: [MCN-L] Form submission software and time-lapse video












Begin forwarded message:

 Hello MCN-L,

 I have a couple unrelated questions I would like to throw out to the 

 List.

 First, we in the Photo Department at VMFA are looking for some sort 

 of form submission solution. Currently, requests for photography  
 from the museum staff come to us on paper. We are looking for a  
 software solution, in a box (via intranet) or web-based, that will  
 allow our internal staff to digitally submit requests for  
 photography from their own computers. It would be ideal if these  
 forms could be exported into a spreadsheet like Excel. Another perk 

 would be if the form submission system would allow tracking, so that 

 we can acknowledge receipt of the request and acknowledge=2
0 
 completion. We do not currently have a museum-wide digital asset  
 management system, though I know some of the ?enterprise? systems  
 allow this feature. We are looking for recommendations, if anyone  
 has any, for systems, packages, or web-based systems that would  
 allow this sort of online form submission and tracking that would be 

 separate from an asset management system.

 Secondly, we are looking for recommendations for inexpensive digital 

 video cameras that have a time-lapse capture feature. If anyone is  
 using anything to accomplish these sort of videos, we would  
 appreciate hearing about what you are using. We are looking  
 specifically for small, light, and inexpensive camera systems for  
 documenting installations and construction.

 Thanks in advance...

[MCN-L] Student Loan Forgiveness

2008-09-26 Thread Nik Honeysett
If you're a student or know one...
 
-nik
 
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
 
The College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 established a new public 
service loan forgiveness program that discharges any remaining debt after 10 
years of full-time employment in public service - including tax-exempt 
501(c)(3) organizations.  This contrasts with loan forgiveness for borrowers 
who are not employed full time in public service jobs:  forgiveness of the 
remaining balance after 25 years of repayment under the income-contingent and 
income-based repayment plans.  Borrowers must consolidate into Direct Lending 
to qualify for the loan forgiveness.
 
Forgiveness occurs only after 120 monthly payments made on or after October 1, 
2007, so October 2017...keep paying!  Remaining interest and principal are 
forgiven.  The borrower must be employed full-time in a public service job for 
each of the 120 monthly payments.
 
Only payments on a Federal Direct Loan are counted.
 
Eligible loans include Federal Direct Stafford Loans (Subsidized and 
Unsubsidized), Federal Direct PLUS Loans, and Federal Direct Consolidation 
Loans.  Borrowers in the FFEL Program will need to consolidate into Direct 
Loans.
 
Although Perkins Loans are not eligible for public service loan forgiveness, if 
they are included in a Federal Direct Consolidation Loan, the entire 
consolidation loan, including the Perkins Loans, is eligible for public service 
loan forgiveness.  Perkins Loan borrowers will need to consider the tradeoffs 
of consolidation; they may lose favorable benefits such as subsidized interest, 
a 9-month grace period, and a generous loan forgiveness program.
 
Parent PLUS and Grad PLUS have some contingencies, but may be eligible for the 
loan forgiveness program when included in a Federal Direct Consolidation Loan.  
See the link below for further information.
 
Eligible repayment plans are income-based repayment, income contingent 
repayment, standard repayment or a combination of these repayment plans.  
Payments made under other repayment plans (such as extended repayment and 
graduated repayment) are not eligible.
 
Bottom Line Advice:
 
Borrowers who will be employed in public service jobs and who have loans under 
the FFEL program should obtain a Federal Direct Consolidation Loan as soon as 
possible.
Parent PLUS borrowers who entered repayment on or after July 1, 2006, will need 
to consolidate their PLUS loans even if they are already in the Direct Loan 
program.
Borrowers should start off with income-contingent repayment if they can.  They 
should switch to income-based repayment as soon as it becomes available on July 
1, 2009, if they can.
 
There are some caveats: under current law, the amount of debt discharged is 
probably treated as taxable income, leading to a big federal income tax bill 
after 10 years.  Care must be taken to determine that the savings exceed the 
tax liability.  It is also possible that Congress will decide to exclude such 
loan forgiveness from taxable income before this becomes an issue in 2017.  An 
additional caveat: the loan forgiveness program is targeted at students who 
pursue public service careers and who have high debt and low income.  Borrowers 
with low debt and/or high income will not benefit as much.

An Invitation to Apply for the Position of  Vice President and Chief
Digital Officer
 
American Museum of Natural History, New York, New York
 

THE SEARCH
 
The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH or the Museum) seeks a
visionary, strategic-minded leader as Vice President and Chief Digital
Officer.  This is a newly created leadership position at the Museum and
an outstanding opportunity to head digital strategy formulation and
implementation at one of the world?s preeminent scientific and cultural
institutions.  
 
Since its founding in 1869, the American Museum of Natural History has
advanced its global mission to discover, interpret, and disseminate
information about human cultures, the natural world, and the universe
through a wide ranging program of scientific research, education, and
exhibitions.  Today, it is one of the largest natural history museums in
the world, housing more than 40 exhibition halls, numerous laboratories
and teaching facilities, a major natural history library, and vast
storage areas for its extensive collections of specimens and cultural
artifacts. Long an innovator in science research and education, the
Museum recently established the Richard Gilder Graduate School, becoming
the first and only museum in the U.S. to offer a Ph.D. degree.  
 
The Vice President and Chief Digital Officer (CDO) reports directly to
the President and will build and lead a new centralized Digital Group to
serve and support the Museum?s mission, operations, and programs.  In
collaboration with other Museum leaders and constituencies, the CDO will
have responsibility for the development, promotion, and management of
all digital content and activities at the Museum.  A highly visible
position on the AMNH senior leadership team, the CDO will have
tremendous potential for institution-wide impact.
 
The American Museum of Natural History has retained Isaacson, Miller, a
national executive search firm, to assist in the recruitment of the Vice
President and Chief Digital Officer.  After extensive consultation with
representatives from the Museum?s leadership, the firm has prepared this
document, which will be shared with candidates and sources in the
search.  More information about the Museum can be found at
http://www.amnh.org/.
 

BACKGROUND
 
History and Mission
 
The American Museum of Natural History is a nonprofit, educational
corporation, chartered in 1869 as a museum and library by a special act
of the Legislature of the State of New York.   Established ?for the
purpose of . . . encouraging and developing the study of Natural
Science; of advancing the general knowledge of kindred subjects and to
that end of furnishing popular instruction,? the Museum counts among its
early supporters founder Albert S. Bickmore, as well as such prominent
New Yorkers as Theodore Roosevelt, Sr. and J.P. Morgan.  The Museum is a
member of the University of the State of New York under the auspices of
the Regents of the State of New York and is accredited by the American
Association of Museums. 
Since its founding, the American Museum of Natural History has been one
of the world?s preeminent institutions for scientific research and
education, with a commitment to exploring the broad range of natural
history ? including cultural history, systematics, and earth processes,
as well as the diversity and behavior of zoological life. The AMNH
mission, which reflects a close integration of science and education, is
to discover, interpret, and disseminate through scientific research and
education knowledge about human cultures, the natural world, and the
universe.
Today, AMNH is a complex, multifaceted organization with broad
international scope and impact and one of the largest natural history
museums in the world.  AMNH has earned recognition as a leader in
research in the natural sciences and anthropology, as well as in museum
education and exhibition. It is renowned worldwide for its extraordinary
collections of artifacts and specimens and for its exceptional program
of permanent and temporary exhibitions, which present a panorama of the
world?s cultures, serve as a field guide to the entire planet, and
examine the universe beyond Earth.
The AMNH campus sits in the middle of the approximately 18-acre
Theodore Roosevelt Park of the City of New York on Manhattan?s Upper
West Side and comprises a complex of 27 interconnected buildings housing
45 permanent exhibit halls, a planetarium, temporary exhibition halls,
research and collections facilities, and a natural sciences library,
with parking and food service amenities for the convenience of its
approximately four million annual visitors. 
Throughout its history, the Museum has had a commitment to the
exploration and conservation of the natural world that has been rivaled
by few other institutions. Its scientific staff numbers over 200,
including more than 40 curators, and carries out research programs in
anthropology,

We attempted to do this at one point, but found it to be a real challenge. 
Aside from issues like every metrics software having a different notion of what 
constitutes a visit, we found that some institutions either didn't or didn't 
want to filter out unwanted traffic such as bots and spiders, which are 
significant numbers. In the pursuit of accuracy, we went through one 
significant upgrade of our metrics software NetGenesis (web log processing) and 
recently switched to Omniture (page tagging). Both changes resulted in 
decreases in our traffic due to improvements in filtering. We previously 
concluded that the only way to accurately benchmark with others, was for all to 
use a centralized system like this and match all parameters. So, good luck with 
that...

2008-03-11 Thread Nik Honeysett
Google Analytics is a page tagging service, its accuracy will depend on you and 
what you want. If you have comprehensively tagged all your pages, then it will 
comprehensively report on your traffic, but that traffic will include bots and 
spiders i.e. not real people. You can filter these out - up to a point - but 
are real-people numbers important to you? Its unlikely that you will ever get 
an accurate number of real people visiting your site, so its best to accept 
that.
 
Assuming, you did have an accurate number and that number suddenly doubled or 
halved what would you do? What would happen? In either case you would want to 
know why, but you're not really interested in the number, only the change. You 
can figure that out whether you have real-people numbers or all-inclusive 
numbers. Your real concern should be trends and Google Analytics is fine for 
this, as long as you know what you're reporting and you don't change the 
filtering.

Have any of the institutions who have gone down the DAMS road also
succeeded in developing policies for deciding which assets to retain?
The discussions we have had here leave our heads spinning wondering who
would make these decisions and with what criteria. Like everyone else,
we have thousands of images depicting multiple views of an event or
gallery, multiple bracketed exposures of conservation treatment or
collections documentation, multiple images specific to a particular
initiative or campaign long past, alternate crops or edits, and so on.
We realized quickly that these decisions would have to be made in many
cases by a knowledgeable and broad-minded staff person rather than a
student intern or volunteer. But who has the time?

And then there is the perhaps even more complex world of audio and
video. Archive the raw footage, the outtakes, the clips, the final
edits, etc.?

We have a task force that is developing a proposal for an
enterprise-wide DAMS and the task force wants to include information
about the impact a DAMS would have on process and staffing.

If anyone has been through this and come up with solutions for their
institutions, we would very much appreciate it if you could share them
with us. It would also be interesting to know whether the permissions
and policies that can be set by a DAMS administrator might also enforce
conformity to established standards for content selection.

[MCN-L] Archive materials - image sizes?

2008-01-08 Thread Nik Honeysett
Bravo to Sam (the man with the longest title in Museum Technology) for
questioning time honored advice. (Hmm... Time honored?). There are other
areas where this thinking is being applied very productively, for
example in software and website development.
 
I know this topic has come up before, but I'm concerned by the do it
once, burn to DVD, never have to do it again philosophy. Life
expectancy for this media is not in the never range. If you are on a
digitization initiative and buying large quantities of low quality media
you should be wary of the life expectancy of your archive. You may
_have_ to rescan or at least transfer to different media stock. In that
regard a more appropriate resolution based on your institution's short-
to mid- term needs (5-10 years?) may be appropriate.
 
Storage is cheap, but this compounds the problem. Bigger, faster,
cheaper means that you put more of your digital eggs in one media
basket. If one out of 10 DVDs fail, you loose 100 tiffs, if one out 10
HD-DVDs fail, you loose 1,000 tiffs.

 Waibel,Guenter waibelg at oclc.org 1/8/2008 9:37 AM 
Hi Perian,

A lot of the responses you've received so far have advised you to go
for higher resolution. I belief that this advice may make sense in
certain circumstances (for example, original art, fragile materials or
small high-value collections), but the situation you're describing is
different (the documents aren't precious). I'd encourage you to weigh
the intended use of the material in making your decision. The advice you
received was accurate if your main goal is preservation, but that's not
what your post led me to believe. If your main goal is increased access
to as many items in your collection as fast as possible, I think a
different approach may be more suitable.

For those of you who will be surprised to hear me say this... Sam
Quigley gave an inspiring talk at an SAA preconference RLG Programs
organized in Chicago '07, during which he began to question the
time-honored advice of do it once for all time, and argued that a
model of rapid digitization for access may be just as valid to make
museum collections available as quickly as possible. It made me (and
some of my colleagues) refine our positions when it comes to
digitization. Since I don't want to put words in Sam's mouth any more
than I've already done (I suspect he's reading this!), you can listen to
his talk at http://www.oclc.org/programs/events/2007-08-29.htm.

Some of my colleagues who were involved in organizing this event put
together a provocative essay called Shifting Gears, summarizing some
of the forward-looking ideas discussed during the event Sam spoke at -
the end result is very much aimed at the archival community, but worth
considering in this context as well. You'll find it at
http://www.oclc.org/programs/publications/reports/2007-02.pdf. Here's
a pertinent excerpt:

Many of our digital initiatives have stressed the importance of
preservation, leaving access as an afterthought (the idea being if you
capture preservation-quality; you can always derive an access copy). In
reality, due to the very special nature of these often unique materials,
we will always preserve the originals to the best of our ability. In
light of recent programs for the mass digitization of books, if special
collections and their funding continue to be marginalized, our
administrations may not keep us around to attend to the originals.

In the past, we've soothed our doubts by repeating the mantra, we'll
only get one chance to do it, so it's got to be done right. Experience
has shown that that is not in fact the case. Often we do go back when
the technology improves or when we better understand our users' needs.
We need to put on our helmets now and go for the biggest bang for the
buck in terms of access.

Cheers,
G?nter

1) many of our archival materials were already scanned at 300 dpi
(that
being the original size I designated, but we've a long way to go yet) 
2) the majority of our reproduction requests are for 300 dpi JPG
3) storage space concerns
4) archive materials are mostly documents and don't necessarily need
600
dpi treatment
5) since the documents aren't precious like the 3D materials and
photographs, we can go back and rescan if we really need a 600 dpi JPG
(ie. handling concerns aren't as great)

On the 600 side:
1) scan once and be done with it
2) we do sometimes 

[MCN-L] Image Size (was Pan Zoom Server)

2007-09-06 Thread Nik Honeysett
This doesn't quite answer the question but addresses the issue of what is worth 
stealing. We tried some comparative print tests of raw and derivative jpeg 
images. Raw images were uncompressed tiff approximately 4000 pixels square, the 
scaled and compressed images were scaled to 1600 pixels and jpeg compressed 
using Photoshop setting 8. The resulting images were about 1 MB in file size. 
We printed a range of sizes from 4 x 6 up to 24 x 36 - postcard to poster 
size. In blind tests most people couldn't tell the difference even at the 
largest size, only the trained eye could reliably differentiate and not without 
close examination. While you might expect this result for the smaller prints, 
the poster size print result was interesting. The largest size was printed to 
canvas which helped in disguising the artefacts and used a Light Jet printer.

Matt's comment about image size leads me to wonder what members of the
MCN community think is the biggest possible image that would not be
worth stealing for financial gain. Here we have settled on 500 pixel
images, but that was fairly arbitrary.

Do we know that users like zooming? Or if certain particular groups of
users like zooming?

I often find zooming irritating. I would mostly rather have a single,
somewhat larger full view of an image than to zoom in on just a piece of
the image, even if the detail is not as good. Zooming takes more clicks
 drags, and then I end up with something where I can't really see the
work.

I just wonder sometimes if the effort we put into zoom is worthwhile.
Should we just make the images bigger? I know that ours could be a lot
bigger before it's possible to get any financial gain by stealing them.

Thanks,
Matt

had a few minutes to complete a 6-question, anonymous, multiple-choice
survey to gather some data from the field comparing physical visitors to
your museum, with your online traffic. In addition, the survey addresses
institutional resources devoted to website development. I hope you can
find the time to complete this brief survey or send this link to the
appropriate individual in your institution. I will present the results
as part of the session and also summarise through musematic.

[MCN-L] publishing URLS: rule of thumb?

2006-12-19 Thread Nik Honeysett
From a branding standpoint you should always try to promote your domain
name as cleanly as possible. The chances of anyone typing a long url
correctly are slim, and ideally as Ari says, it should be memorable so
that they don't need the listing to type it out. The ideal situation is
to list your domain and ensure there is a relevant link on it, either
directly or indirectly - we promote events indirectly by listing the
homepage and an instruction to link to our Events Calendar; or directly
by just listing the homepage and feature an icon of that event on our
home page. Alternatively, we set up a redirect at the root level so that
we can promote a short url comprising of domain name and a short
descriptor e.g. getty.edu/thang

 Ari Davidow aridavidow at gmail.com 12/19/2006 8:29 AM 
It depends on what you are promoting. If you are talking about your
website
in general, use the main home page. If you are talking about something
specific, send people to that specific location (this is where you want
to
either have human-readable URLs or build in some simple redirects).
You
never want to send people to your website, and from there to have to
figure
out how to get where they really wanted to be.

[MCN-L] Can a CIS be a DAMS too?

2006-07-07 Thread Nik Honeysett
IMHO, I think it is a mistake to expect a single system to do both the job of a 
CIS and DAM well, for the good reasons that are discussed in this thread. I 
would look long and hard at any vendor who claimed a system that did, or 
claimed to be able to build a system that did. These systems do very different 
things, but there are crucial points of intersection and the principle of 
best-of-breed is one that should be applied here. Meet your institution's needs 
separately for each system with the additional requirement of the ability to 
integrate at the appropriate points for each. I would rather be in the position 
of going to a software developer to develop the integration of two 
applications, than the ground-up development of a complex application like 
this. Consider too, that both vendors may partner in the development of some 
integration software that would enhance their product.

Modularity and interoperability are key componants to a sustainable 
infrastructure for the management of digital resources in all their forms, and 
don't be swaid by the perceived cost-saving of a single system.

My 2 cents.

I have been loving this discussion, especially as I , along with Maureen
Burns, are moderating a Panel at the Pasadena Conference on Taming the Many
Headed DAM.  This panel is the result of questions raised at my workshop on
Managing a DAM in Boston, regarding just this issue.
One thing I think is important to consider as far as one stop solutions go
is that the managing of the data ( images and metadata) may be one solution,
but you still might want for different inputs and output solutions if only
in terms of user interfaces.
The problem in the single solution for data managing seems to be data
structuring.  I wonder if we could take a fresh look at Dublin Core for more
specialized uses, such as how the VRA Core and CCO are tweaking it to work
with cultural objects.  Might there not also be a cross walkable Core for
Publishing, exhibits, archives. Etc?
Maybe the RLG's   Museum Collections Sharing Working
Group, could add to their list?

 Hi Matt,
 
 I'm curious about where the drive is coming from to have a one stop
 solution mean there's one system under it all.   I often feel sorry
 for the folks at Past Perfect when I see comments elsewhere about why
 doesn't it also do accounting, POS,  and your taxes on top of already
 managing museum collections, archives, libraries, and membership.  I
 think it juliennes potatoes too.
 
 I didn't mean to argue that CIS's /should/ offer DAMS-type
 services. I just
 think it's a common hope.
 
 I was surprised to realize this when it came to DAMS, but museums
 are the
 DAMS vendors' most demanding customers. For example, the number of
 them that
 can satisfy Deborah's hierarchy demands even partially (or with
 difficult
 workarounds) is pretty few. You would think that big real estate
 companies
 (region, city, neighborhood, street, house, room--just guessing but
 you get
 the idea), for example, might have similar needs. But I guess
 they're not
 using DAMS yet, or they're not being very demanding.
 
 So given the unlikelihood that a top-notch CIS vendor, really
 specialized in
 that field, could also become a first-rate DAMS vendor, I think the
 one-stop
 solution is not going to happen.
 
 
 Colleges and universities are working to build institutional
 repositories (IR) to capture grey literature' on campuses, and some
 of these solutions may be adaptable to building digital repositories
 of non-collection materials in a museum, as you suggest - CAD
 drawings, exhibit scripts, PR copy, etc.
 
 I have seen some custom software vendors looking at Fedora
 (http://fedora.us) as a back-end for a combined (physical and
 digital) asset
 management solution. It certainly meets all the storage  organization
 requirements, and with an easier-to-use UI layer it could work.
 
 
 The challenge of course, is that sometimes these materials are
 related to objects in a CIS, or images in DAM.   As I suggested to
 Dianne, the question may be, how do we build more open systems that
 allow interaction between different functions.
 
 That is definitely the right approach!
 
 Thanks,
 Matt

[MCN-L] programmer salaries

1970-01-10 Thread Nik Honeysett
We don't use monster.com to hire but its a fairly good tool to figure out what 
the state of the job market is for situations like this. You can use 
monster.com to search for programmer postings in Boston and then filter by 
salary range - you won't get (m)any for what you're looking to offer. And Holly 
is right on the money - you get what you pay for...

We're having a bit of an argument here about appropriate salaries for
programming staff. We are considering hiring our first developer. The
internal argument goes something like, this person is just out of school
and we can't pay him as much as someone with a Masters - ie, we can't pay
as much as we pay our starting humanities graduates. The reality is that we
could then be offering someone in the very low $30k range, which is, by my
quick glance at Boston salaries, about 10k  (or more) lower than such people
get outside of our field.

For those people who have hired staff developers, what do you pay for what
skills at what level? -- I imagine paying less for PHP developers than Java
developers, for instance. Where are there some salary tables that I can look
at to get a sense of what an expensive city (Boston) pays for these skills
in the non-profit world (recognizing that most non-profits do not hire staff
developers).
