The vision thing - TED 2009 - Pattie Maes & Pranav Mistry: Unveiling the "Sixth Sense,"
Like everywhere at the moment, there are days when you need a bit of inspiration. So I asked my colleagues for some clues. This suggestion is from Helen Smiths, design/ia lead at mcgovern online.
A Museum/ Library/ Gallery/ connection?
Thinking about this later, I couldn't help but ask myself - how would a museum or a big heritage library, or art gallery contribute to the world she imagines ?
What kind of resources , collections, experience and competencies could they contribute to the world being imagined here? And is there enough thinking going on to address these questions?
If so, where? And does it matter ?.
Te Papa Our Space
Answering my own question? The Te Papa Our Space project might be worth bringing into this discussion.
And, while I'm at it, maybe the upcoming Auckland Writers Festival should take the opportunity to screen this, and then ask a panel from the writing and publishing community, how they will contribute to this brave new world?
There are also a number of other presentations from the February, 2009 conference on the TED site for download, embeds and streaming. In short, a Friday feast.
