I love the idea of the Ubiquitous Museum.
“This is a system that allows us to use our mobile phone like a magnifying glass as a tool to discover hidden history and stories, as we stroll around town.”
And it gets cooler:
“What makes this system unique is its participatory approach. Users are encouraged to be providers of information, not just to be receivers.”
I’ve always had a fascination with uncovering and presenting the layers of history hidden under the city streets. It’s the kind of content that museums have unique access to and unique resources to develop, but at the same time it’s difficult to find the resources. Hopefully as standards develop, it’ll be easier to produce re-usable content.
