Mark Hook has worked at the Victoria and Albert Museum since 1983, moving from Information Systems to the Web Team 8 years ago, when a rethink of the website led the museum to increase content and clarify design and presentation. Since then Mark and his colleagues have produced a range of projects to expose the depth and breadth of the Museum’s collections with a strong focus on user generated content and they have recently embarked on a series of adventures with projects focussing on the possibilities of Web 2.0

Mark will demonstrate Web 2.0 on the Beach – The V&A experiments with a Mashup. [Demonstration]
