Hi Carey,

Flowing in from Mandy’s excellent suggestion,just remember that you’ll also 
need staff to assist visitors and to wipe the headsets after each use.

[MCN-L] Is anyone familiar with History IT?

2019-01-16 Thread Robin White Owen
Hello MCNers,

I posted this back in December but didn’t get any traction. However I’m still 
interested since one of our clients is considering using the History IT 
platform. 

We’re trying to gain a better understanding of how flexible their templates are 
- how easy it is to customize the navigation as well as the front end design. 

We’re looking into how we can use their platform to present an archive of video 
oral histories, transcriptions and other documents, and create a contemporary 
and user friendly experience for an audience of young women activists. Their 
set up  is very useful but seems to cater more to academics.

If you’ve had any experience with History IT we’d love to hear about it. Feel 
free to respond off list.

Thank you very much,

Robin

Re: [MCN-L] Funding for Digital Media

2018-10-21 Thread Robin White Owen

Thanks to everyone for the information on funders who support digital media in 
some form. These grants cover a broad range of “digital,” from media 
production(video, interactive, web, mobile, AR,VR), to TV production, to 
digital staff and digitizing collections. 

These are the funding sources I have so far, in no particular order:

1. NEH
2. IMLS
3. The Knight Foundation
4. Bloomberg Philanthropies
5. Samuel Kress Foundation
6. MacArthur Foundation
7. NEA
8. Mellon Foundation

in Canada:
9. Documentary Heritage Communities Program
10. Canada Council for the Arts

Google Arts was also suggested. I’m not sure how to evaluate that since they 
create digital projects for museums, rather than contributing to museum 
initiated projects. What do you think? 

Should hardware manufacturers and software developers, who tend to cherry pick 
projects, also be included? 

I know funding patterns change over time but I’m interested in putting together 
a list of programs that are ongoing or have been sustained over a period of 
years. It would be great to add to this list, and then include how much money 
each source has granted, over the past 5 years or so.  It’s time consuming 
research! I need a smart intern!

Looking forward to more conversation on this.

Robin

[MCN-L] Funding for Digital Projects

2018-10-01 Thread Robin White Owen
Hello all,

I’ve been researching funding sources and the amounts that have been made 
available for digital media projects in museums in the US, or trying to anyway. 
There isn’t a single source of this information that I’ve been able to find. 
Aside from recent funders, the Knight Foundation and Bloomberg Philanthropies, 
and the IMLS, who are other regulars funders of digital projects? 

I’d be happy to share whatever I can gather.

Best,

Robin

Hi Dalton, Sina and Tim,

Thanks very much for your honest assessments! It’s so helpful to have 
additional opinions from experts in the field. I’m not familiar with craftcms 
but will look into it and suggest that the client’s web team does too.

Best,

Robin

[MCN-L] Expression Engine

2018-09-14 Thread Robin White Owen
Hi all,

I’ve been asked to evaluate Expression Engine as a web platform, compared to 
Drupal or Wordpress. I’d love to hear from any of you whose sites are built in 
EE and why you chose to use it. 

Also, from those of you who’ve compared EE with the others and chose not to use 
it.

Thanks very much in advance, as always,

Robin

Hi Shyam,

We here at Mediacombo are VR producers and eager to work with museums 
interested in this medium. We have been producing audio, video and interactive 
media for museums for several years. Here’s a link to a current 
project:http://www.mediacombo.net/portfolio_page/extreme-water/. I’d be happy 
to see how we can help you!

Re: [MCN-L] website image cropping

2016-12-13 Thread Robin White Owen
Hi Chris,

We designed a website for the Museum of the City of New York with the same kind 
of banner design: http://activistnewyork.mcny.org
I know some of the photos were copyrighted. I can give you Sarah Spink’s 
contact info, the associate curator, to ask how they handled the 
cropping/copywrite issues.

We also designed a site for the IFPDA <http://www.ifpda.org/> with a massive 
slide show of artwork  that can’t be cropped. We set height and width limits so 
the strange sizes of the works don’t break the design, and had to keep all the 
title/artist/date information in one place as a result. We’re redesigning the 
entire website right now but have kept this slide show format because it 
showcases the art works so well, and that’s what was essential to do.

Best,

Robin

Hi all,

We’re looking for a recommendation for a company that sells and installs LED 
walls for permanent installation. If you have any information, I’d be grateful.

[MCN-L] Panel on VR

2016-04-28 Thread Robin White Owen
Hi Listers,

I know there’s a lot of interest in Virtual Reality these days. There are so 
many kinds of reality - virtual reality experienced with visual and audio 
headsets, interactive virtual reality experienced with visual and audio 
headsets and hand controls, and simulated games, for example.

I’d like to chair a session on how museums have started to explore and 
experiment with these technologies and what the issues are.  Casting a wide net 
right now.

If your museum is investigating or using VR, Sim games, perhaps even AR, and 
you’re interested in the panel idea, please let me know.

Thank you,

Robin

 Yo All,
 
 Does anyone have a list of handy apps that can turn a basic html page on an 
 iPad into a locked display app.
 I'm thinking kiosk-mode/lockdown thangs.
 
 This is for a v. simple web page displaying content in a gallery with the 
 same web page also used on the live web. Any links on the open web, should 
 not work on the locked-down gallery display of the same page: no swiping, no 
 access to native OS shortcuts etc.
 
 The main iPad buttons can be assumed to be physically inaccessible.
 
 Happy to summarise to lists, or take direct offline private comments, etc

 Hi everyone:
 
 On July 7th, following 40 weeks +42 hours of preparation and labor, I 
 released a new physical interactive, which we've named Eliana. Eliana 
 was originally 8lbs, 5 oz and 19.5 long, but, being interactive and now 
 5 weeks old, her specs have since changed significantly. She also has an 
 awful lot of hair, and we're not sure which programmer is responsible 
 for that. Since it's a feature, and not currently a bug, we're calling 
 the hair a success.
 
 I know many of you have been subjected to my snarky updates and photos 
 on ye olde Facebook, but since I have so many friends and colleagues in 
 the musetech and registrar communities, I wanted to let the rest of you 
 know about my latest project.
 
 Cheers,
 
 ~Peria

[MCN-L] walking tours via mobile web

2014-05-30 Thread Robin White Owen
Hi Nancy,

Thanks very much for that link! I was sorry I had to miss the bake-off at 
MW2014. I'm finding that you're right about how many mobile developers are 
wrapping mobile websites. We have to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of 
native vs web apps. I think for a walking tour the advantage of a native app is 
GPS awareness, but in NYC wi-fi and 4G are just about ubiquitous, and web apps 
are easier to produce. We're looking into TAP and TourML too. 

Thanks also to you all who have contacted me off list.

Best,

Robin

 Hi Robin,
 You might check out the mobile developers who participated in MW2014's Mobile 
 Bake-off. Info on them and links to their demo tours of Baltimore are 
 available in the session record for Friday, 4 April at 10am:  
 http://mw2014.museumsandtheweb.com/program/
 
 I also got the chance to try some outdoor walking tours in the STQRY app 
 while in Seattle for AAM. It's not a web app (and nor are all the ones from 
 the MW Mobile Bake-off), but in my experience most app developers are 
 wrapping a mobile website anyway so it shouldn't be hard to get a web version 
 if that's what you want.
 
 Is there WIFI throughout the route of the tour? If not, a native app might be 
 preferable anyway.
 
 Good luck,
 Nancy

 Application Programming Interface for the Collection of the Walters Art Museum
 
 Allows Internet Developers and Software Programmers to Use Data About the 
 Museum's Collection
 
 The Walters Art Museum is pleased to announce the release of a new 
 application programming interfacehttp://api.thewalters.org/ (API). The new 
 API will allow for Internet developers and software programmers to query data 
 from the museum, whose Internet repository contains more than 10,000 digital 
 records of art and artifacts from the museum's collection. The records 
 include information about the artworks as well as digital images. The museum 
 created the API so developers and programmers can more easily create their 
 own applications that feature the museum's data and images. The data and 
 images are made available to the public under a public license that 
 facilitates reuse, even for commercial purposes, provided that the museum is 
 cited as the source. The project to build the Walters API was directed by 
 James Mazahttp://thewalters.org/news/staff/maza.aspx, Chief Technology 
 Officer; it was managed by Kate Blanchmailto:kblanch at

 About the Walters Museum
 The Walters Art Museum is located in downtown Baltimore's historic Mount 
 Vernon Cultural District at North Charles and Centre Streets. At the time of 
 his death in 1931, museum founder Henry Walters left his entire collection of 
 art - including a legendary collection of illuminated medieval manuscripts 
 that is a national treasure - to the city of Baltimore. Between 1895 and 
 1931, Walters collected around 730 codices.  Its permanent collection 
 includes ancient art, medieval art and manuscripts, decorative objects, Asian 
 art and Old Master and 19th-century paintings.

[MCN-L] open caption standards

2013-06-09 Thread Robin White Owen
Hi Brian,

When we caption videos for in gallery display  the font size that seems to work 
best for us is 20pt. We always try to find a font that's similar to whatever 
fonts are being used in the gallery graphics, as long as it's san serif, since 
we've found those fonts easier to read as captions. 

We typically make the lettering white, and lay the captions down on a 
transparent 60% black background. This helps legibility while not imposing an 
ugly, heavy black band along the bottom of the screen.

We never us open captions for aesthetic reasons. 

When captions in two languages are involved it can be tricky. You may need to 
edit two different videos to accommodate the different speaking times. For 
example it takes longer to say something in Spanish than in English, so 
sometimes a scene will need to stay up longer to allow for that extra time. 

To play a different language, either visitors can push a button prominently 
marked For Spanish language, press here or something like that, or the 
different language versions alternate playing and a sign indicates that. The 
second approach works for short videos, the first one is better for longer 
programs.

In terms of speaker positions - that depends on the viewing environment. If 
visitors are standing and watching a video on a screen in an open environment 
focused sound cones mounted above the area where people stand are the best way 
to go. If you've got an alcove viewing area that's at least partially blocked 
off, speakers mounted on both sides of the screen, facing viewers are typically 
used.

I hope this helps.

 Hey Folks,
 
 I'm doing some work to formalize our captioning standards for museum video
 displays, for a big new show that we're working on [1]. We've developed
 some internal best-practices (well, strong opinions maybe). But I'd love to
 see how they align with other institutions' or other standards from outside
 the museum field.
 
 I'm curious about:
 * Line length
 * Text color, style
 * Font choice
 * Dual language displays
 * Speaker position
 * Open vs. closed (or optional) captions
 * Captioning in a multi-screen media theater or object theater
 
 There's lots of information out there related to standards for captioning
 in movies and TV, but these standards often miss some elements of the
 dynamics in a museum environment. Any online-resources, scientific papers,
 or opinions are welcome.
 
 Best,
 bk

 It's cold and raining here this morning.  If you, like I, need something to 
 get heated up about:
 
 A lawsuit filed by William Faulkner's heirs over a quote in the Woody Allen 
 film Midnight in Paris has been scheduled for trial April 7, 2014, in U.S. 
 District Court in Oxford.
 The Faulkner estate sued Sony Pictures Classics Inc. in October 2011, saying 
 the company infringed on copyright when actor Owen Wilson slightly misquoted 
 a line from Faulkner's Requiem for a Nun.
 In the film, the Wilson character says: The past is not dead. Actually, it's 
 not even past. You know who said that? Faulkner. And he was right.
 In Requiem for a Nun, the Faulkner passage reads: The past is never dead. 
 It's not even past.
 Sony claims the quote is fair use, a legal term meaning the user doesn't 
 have to license or pay for it.

 Absolutely, thank you Glen. I'm wondering at the moment about high-res 
 images intended for delivery through an IIPImage server. If we store large 
 volumes of these we'll definitely want plenty of space at low cost, but they 
 need to be in, effectively, local storage, so that the server can access 
 them as part of the file system and then stream them out as tiles to users 
 in real time. I guess for this scenario block storage is actually what we 
 need? 
 
 
 I'll defer to Nate in the other comments as he has had specific experience 
 with IIPImage. The only other thing I would add is that there are various 
 storage appliances that you can get that gives a hybrid approach where it 
 looks like local disk to your apps internally and has a local cache but 
 stores all the main data on S3. Check out the AWS Marketplace and it might 
 also be good to get in touch with a local Amazon integrator. 
 
 It might be good to send a followup post to the list once you make a decision 
 so others can benefit form your research!
 
 Thanks,
 Glen

[MCN-L] Advice About Cloud Storage

Hello List,

We are planning to use a cloud service to store large numbers of hi-res digital 
images for an online education platform. If any of you already use cloud 
services I'd be very grateful for recommendations or advice about what to look 
out for.

Thank you, as always.

 We've worked with Expression Engine on a number of projects most notably:
 
 http://withart.visitphilly.com
 http://constitutioncenter.org
 
 It's a great CMS, really easy to use on the admin side and much easier to 
 work with in tandem with a sophisticated JS heavy front-end. EE injects 
 dynamic data into your markup really cleanly so you get much less extra 
 markup out of the gate compared to Drupal or some other CMSs.
 
 That said Drupal is still on our CMS of choice, since it's totally open 
 source and their is a much greater range and depth to the available modules. 
 We have also been working with Symfony, which is a framework that will be the 
 basis for Drupal 8.
 
 If you have any specific questions or need any contacts for EE devs (we know 
 a great dev shop that specializes in complex EE builds that we've teamed with 
 from time to time) hit me up off-list
 
 All the best

 Hello all,
 
 First, thank you to the people who got in touch with examples of on-line 
 learning platforms built in Drupal. Now I have a request for completely 
 different kind of information.
 
 We need to spec a computer to act as a  server for a Linux based (LAMP) 
 project and would greatly appreciate recommendations for what to buy. It 
 seems unnecessary to buy a Dell and pay for Windows when we won't be using 
 it. But, maybe I'm wrong about that.
 
 Any advice based on your experiences would be helpful. Thank you, in advance,

 Robin ?
 
 Are cloud-based servers from Amazon / Rackspace / Linode an option or do you 
 need a physical server on site?
 
 I'd lobby pretty hard for the former if you're not sure.

 hey Robin
 
 Meant to jump on the last post. We do a ton of work with Drupal work. Drupal 
 and Expression Engine are both really fantastic CMS solutions; we usually 
 lean towards Drupal 7, since its open source, has a large dev community, etc. 
 
 I would definitely try and host this on a MediaTemple (Dreamhost we've been 
 really unhappy with) or a similar hosting platform. Cloud hosting via Amazon 
 S3 is great, but does involve some real heavy lifting on the server side to 
 install and maintain the codebase. 
 
 You might also consider hosting with Acquia:
 http://www.acquia.com
 
 This is a great cloud hosted solution that also provides robust support, will 
 keep your modules and security patches up to date, etc. It's not super cheap 
 but it probably the best long-term hosting solution for Drupal. 
 
 Feel free to hit me up for more info. We've hosted Drupal on a range of 
 hosts and definitely have our favorites. As a general rule don't cheap out on 
 hosting, since migrating a Drupal site is none too easy once its up and 
 running. 
 
 Hope this helps
 
 Josh

 Hi All -
 
 Robin - it's not clear to me what kind of servers you're looking for.
 
 That said, I wanted to make sure people knew about Pantheon for Drupal
 hosting. They provide you with great setups for dev, staging, and
 production. They also make migration code VERY easy. Their servers are
 running on Rackspace so their service is more of a managed dashboard for
 solid architecture. Regardless, they are just as reliable as Acquia.

Hi everyone,

Right after I posted the below response to Sheila I remembered this very useful

This is virtually a how-to build an online learning site in Drupal, with an

 Hi Sheila,
 
 Actually only two people responded with info about Drupal based online 
 learning sites. The first person, Phil Wilson is a wealth of information, not 
 so much about specific sites but about using Drupal to build online learning 
 communities in general. His site is: http://www.lostartsna.org/.
 
 The other response was more about museum exhibition websites that have been 
 built with Drupal, and then a thoughtful recommendation to look into Moodle 
 as an online learning platform - also a good idea. 
 
 So, if others know of on-line learning websites that have been built in 
 drupal, please let all of us know.
 
 Thanks,
 
 Robin

 Hi - I see from the message I copied below that some people shared 
 examples of on-line learning platforms built in Drupal.  I don't recall 
 seeing them here, though; would people be willing to share these with the 
 list?  I'd be interested in seeing some examples.
 
 Thanks,
 
 Sheila

[MCN-L] Drupal Based Online Learning sites mcn-l Digest, Vol 88, Issue 7

2012-12-09 Thread Robin White Owen
Hi Sheila,

 Actually only two people responded with info about Drupal based online 
learning sites. The first person, Phil Wilson is a wealth of information, not 
so much about specific sites but about using Drupal to build online learning 
communities in general. His site is: http://www.lostartsna.org/.

The other response was more about museum exhibition websites that have been 
built with Drupal, and then a thoughtful recommendation to look into Moodle as 
an online learning platform - also a good idea. 

So, if others know of on-line learning websites that have been built in drupal, 
please let all of us know.

Thanks,

Robin

[MCN-L] On-line Education Website

Hello fellow MCNers,

We're researching the possibility of using Drupal to build an on-line education 
site for a museum and would greatly appreciate hearing from any of you who have 
experience with this. I'd love to see some examples and get feedback of the 
pros and cons.

Thank you,

[MCN-L] Question about Elo Touch Screen resolution size

2012-09-26 Thread Robin White Owen
Hi all,

We're designing an interactive for the Elo Touch Screen model: 2639L 26-inch 
Open-Frame Touchmonitor

The specs say the optimum resolution size is 1366 x 768 at 60 Hz. But it also 
lists several other sizes that is supports. 

Since 768px isn't all that big, I'm trying to find out if any of you have 
designed for higher res on this screen and still had your project look great.

Thanks very much for any advice/experience you can pass along.

Robin

[MCN-L] Kiosk Pro and other kiosk tablet apps: mcn-l Digest, Vol 77, Issue 9

2012-01-11 Thread Robin White Owen
Hi Heather,

We recommended using Kiosk Pro for iPads in a museum gallery, but the museum 
was concerned that kids would manage the two-finger swipe that's required to 
get to the admin page. We  ended up using wKiosk, 
http://www.adnx.com/software/wkiosk4mac.html, which satisfied their security 
concerns. Both work well with wifi enabled galleries so the app can be hosted 
on a server locally or in the cloud I believe. 

Bruce Wyman at Second Story also has a hack to put the iPad in kiosk mode w/out 
any additional software, if you want to contact him. He shared it at MCN2011.

Best,

Robin

 Re: MCN update - December 2010
 
 As you know, the MCN New Year begins immediately following the annual 
 conference. There is no rest for the weary! We are already planning great 
 things for the 2011 annual conference in Atlanta, and you can contribute your 
 ideas at http://www.mcn.edu/ . Between now and then, keep an eye on that 
 website as the Board and a skilled squad of volunteers works to improve MCN's 
 online offerings and resources for you, our community.
 
 A brief update on MCN Leadership:
 
 The all-volunteer MCN Board relies heavily on contributions from its 
 Directors, who come directly from our community, and give their time and 
 expertise to support the organization and - by extension - all of you. I am 
 continually honored and humbled to work with this group, they are outstanding 
 professionals and just plain terrific folks.
 
 Holly Witchey has been a valued MCN Director for the past several years, 
 especially in her efforts to make the annual conference truly excellent. Due 
 to changes in her career (and how busy it's making her), she has decided to 
 step down from the Board, effective immediately. While we will most certainly 
 miss her, we know that she will continue to be a trusted colleague, a key 
 contributing member of our community, and a strong voice of advocacy for 
 cultural institutions.  Thank you Holly, from all of us, for your efforts, 
 grace, and positive energy.
 
 Now, a bit of good news: at the MCN Board of Directors meeting earlier this 
 week, the Directors nominated and voted in (unanimously) a replacement 
 Director. We are very lucky to be able to add Victoria Portway to our Board. 
 As Chair of the Web  New Media Division at the Smithsonian National Air and 
 Space Museum, Vicki manages the Museum's web presence and new media 
 initiatives, including development of computer-based experiences on the 
 Museum floor. She has been with the Smithsonian for 17 years, from the 
 building of their first website in 1994. Please join me and the entire Board 
 in welcoming Vicki to the MCN leadership team.
 
 You can learn more about the MCN Board here: http://www.mcn.edu/board
 
 On behalf of MCN, I wish all of you and yours a very happy and safe Holiday 
 season,
 - Douglas

[MCN-L] What do you know about Freebase/Refine?

2010-11-22 Thread Robin White Owen
Hi all,

I posted this the other day and since I heard there was some trouble with the 
list serve and I didn't get any response I thought it was worth asking again:

Does anyone have any experience with Freebase from Google? 

In their own words, 
Freebase is an open, Creative Commons licensed repository of structured data 
of more than 12 million entities. An entity is a single person, place, or 
thing. Freebase connects entities together as a graph. Each one has a unique 
Id, which can help distinguish multiple entities which have similar names, such 
as Henry Ford the industrialist vs Henry Ford the footballer.
Most of our topics are associated with one or more types (such as people, 
places, books, films, etc) and may have additional propertieslike date of 
birth for a person or latitude and longitude for a location. These types and 
properties and related concepts are calledSchema.
Anyone can contribute data to Freebase, and you can also build your own schema 
in a Base if Freebase does not yet have schema for a subject you're interested 
in.
Ways to use Freebase:
Use Freebase's Ids to uniquely identify entities anywhere on the web
Query Freebase's data using MQL
Build applications using our API or Acre, our hosted development platform
Freebase is also a community of thousands of data-lovers, working together to 
improve Freebase's data. 

I'm researching this for a client and would greatly appreciate any info or 
experience you've had with it. Many thanks,
Robin

[MCN-L] iPhone app discussion

2010-03-11 Thread Robin White Owen
Hi all,

There's another option that hasn't been mentioned yet, a DIY version  
called appmakr, from  http://www.appmakr.com/.

I haven't used it so I can't speak from personal experience - perhaps  
someone else on the List can , but people like Guy Kawaski and Seth  
Godin,  well respected social media bloggers and authors,  have used  
it to make apps that are for sale in the iPhone app store, so that  
gives it some credibility.

It's worth checking out while you're doing your research.

Best,

Robin

 Howdy everyone:

 I'm in the midst of reprocessing all (!!) of our image assets  
 from .NEF
 (a RAW format) and I'm wondering if I should take another look at
 JPEG2000 now.

 When I first started imaging the collection, JPEG2000 was in its  
 infancy
 and not widely adopted. As a result, I have my master files in NEF and
 TIF, my high-quality derivatives in TIF, and my accessible and web- 
 ready
 images in JPG.

 Part of this reprocessing will including making new copies of the
 high-quality derivatives as well as the accessible JPGs. So I'm
 wondering if I should replace the HQ derivative TIFs with JPEG2000 at
 this time.

 Anyone have any opinions, experiences or suggestions before I commit  
 to
 this?

 The UK's Wellcome Library announced they were using JPEG2000 last  
 year -
 they've blogged about it at
 http://wellcomelibrary.blogspot.com/2009/09/wellcome-library-to-use-jpeg2000-image.html
  
 .
 The page also includes a copy of the report that informed their  
 decision, or
 you can download it directly at
 http://library.wellcome.ac.uk/assets/wtx056572.pdf

 I'd be interested to hear what you decide to do - JPEG2000 looks  
 interesting
 for its ability to offer deep zooming for publication online but  
 it's hard
 to get a sense of how widely it's supported or used.

 cheers, Mia
