  1. Siliva,

    We are on similar paths. When I studied at Columbia there were no internet or digital studies. I combined my past experience in technology from Silicon Valley with other disciplines. My thesis was human information processing in relationship to information architecture. I then traveled around the world visiting museums and examining their exhibitions, use of technology and mode of musuem education.

    While I found the USA advanced in museum education they were slow to adopt technology due to their funding platform. I then traveled to Europe and tried to engage museums in bringing in more technology to aid the visitor experience and post education opportunity.

    I am arts, visual communication, and education oriented. I am not a technologyphile who is an engineer. I would like to work with museums in the digital age. I find they silo the work between a tech person who runs a website, but knows nothing about art. I find EU museums slow in museum education, due to the fact they took a long time to digitize the collection. Few look at an integrated approach between collection management and visitor education or experience.

    Comming from California I took and entrepreneurial approach. I went for experience first. If I had been on the east coast I might have followed your path to PhD level.
    I have knowlege. Might there be a way to collaborate?

    Sincerely,

    Arlene Atherton
