Resources on Cooper Hewitt’s Pen project and interview of Seb Chan added to MW Showcase

The Museums and the Web Showcase is a new home for documentation of exemplary digital projects and learnings from MW Deep Dives and other events held outside of our annual conferences.

We’ve added resources on Cooper Hewitt’s Pen project, and took the opportunity to ask a few questions of Seb Chan before he left his role as Director of Digital and Emerging Media at the Smithsonian Cooper Hewitt. He is now Chief Experience Officer at ACMI in Melbourne. Feel free to add questions and leave comments below the interview, or contact us at info@museumsandtheweb.com
