Final Presentation on Historypin.
So while doing some research I came across this. For anyone interested in education this is a fabulous resource to search for materials throughout the SI. You can search by state standards, grade levels, and a whole bunch of other categories.
Hey guys just wanted to remind you about the whole SOPA/PIPA bills that I mentioned earlier in the blog. This is still a huge issue in Congress. Google, Facebook, Yahoo, and other big name sites have been hard at work trying to shoot down these bills. Yahoo even resigned from the US Chamber of Commerce over it and others sites are threatening to do the same. Some congressmen are planning to filibuster the vote by reading over a million names of individuals that oppose the bill. Although you guys might not think anything of it right now, it can easily destroy the internet and the internet could end up looking like China’s internet. We could have a Great Firewall just like them. Do we really want to follow in the footsteps of a communist nation. We are a democracy and we all have freedom to do what we want. So please take another look at my previous blog post to get a better understanding of what this could do to the internet. Also if you would like to get involved there are two more sites that I found that you can use to stop this bill.
Each of them give you a way to contact your senator:
So please try to do something. THANKS!

Here is the article by Herminia Din and William Crow about the distant learning course for educators that they designed at the Met.
Hello, can we get 5/6 of you to volunteer to bring your laptops tonight.
Also be thinking about these questions
1. Core themes of course as you interpret them
2. Examples of themes as practiced in museums
3. How this course has changed/adapted/mutated your thinking about technology in museums
4. Possible changes in your future practice
NEW “EXPERIENCE” We talked about the New Museum’s installation in one of my other classes. Here is a video of it. It is different than anything else. They installed a slide to go to to a different floor instead of the elevator or stairs, they have swings, a virtual reality headpiece experience and more technology innovations. This video is at the opening. (It is kinda funny because it is sponsored by a vodka company and fyi they try to make you thirsty but it shows the artist and the technology in the exhibition best.)
Please remember to email me your midterms for the midterm page! email@example.com
we were talking about this in steves class and a few people wanted to see the video that all it did was promoted walmart. it is basically completely ridiculous and it is the first thing you see when you get on the website (if you want to watch the video, which of course i did)
and this video below basically shows how the museum came to be, a lot of the art that is in the museum, and even talks about that Philadelphia painting that everyone got all up in arms about. She gets called a “walmart culture vulture”.
Hey guys so it was brought to my attention by Chris that Congress is trying to pass a bill called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act). I know this isn’t related to the class at all but I think it is important for people to know about it and stop it. It is being lobbied by the big moneymakers in Hollywood who want to stop the streaming of illegally streamed movies. Although I do believe that piracy is a terrible epidemic, the only reason the big moneymakers in Hollywood are trying to get this bill passed is so that they can make more money. The bill would essentially let the gov be able to censor websites that allow copyrighted materials to be posted. They call them rogue websites but this could also end up including Youtube and Facebook. So our favorite websites could end up being shut down because of this bill. Below I’ve posted some links for more information and a way to help stop it.
Here is a link for more information and a video that explains SOPA better:
Here is Mozilla’s efforts to try to stop SOPA:
If you guys can just check this out and even do something little like email your state congressman, I would greatly appreciate it. I just want to keep the internet the way it is. We could end up losing our favorite sites and any creativity on the internet.
