The middle day of the MW2010 conference offered something for everyone. The Exhibit Hall was open all day, offering a chance to review technologies and service to help build a museum's Web presence. Demonstrations of Web sites by museum professionals provided a great chance to see museum Web sites up close and ask questions about their goals, objectives and methods, and a Birds of a Feather Lunch provided a chance for conversation. The Crit Room offered live critique of museum Web design, and the Usability Lab illustrated methods of evaluating a Web site from a user's perspective, quickly and efficiently. Friday closed with the Best of the Web Awards, and then the Conference Reception.
