Nancy Proctor published her first online exhibition in 1995, intending to revolutionize the contemporary art market. Undeterred by 14k modems, she then co-founded TheGalleryChannel.com in 1998 with the aim of publishing virtual tours of obscure exhibitions alongside comprehensive global museum and gallery listings. Both Nancy and TheGalleryChannel were acquired by Antenna Audio, where she searched for the answer to mobile interpretation as head of New Product Development for nearly 8 years. She now works cross-platform again as Head of New Media at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, where she hopes to figure out what the question is.

Nancy will present The Handheld Handbook: Capturing best practices in mobile interpretation for museums. [Mini-Workshop]
