From the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney the Fresh+New blog is firmly aimed at Museum professionals but there’s something for everyone interested in making the conversation between museum and visitor take on that new dimension. Seb Chan is sharing up a storm…….thanks.
Fresh+New is run by the Web Services & Digital Media teams at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney. The purpose of the site is to act as a repository and sounding board for discussions around digital media and its use in museums.

Rants and raves on the latest trends in the world of museum informatics and technology. An intrepid cast of experts from the
Museum Computer Network and AAM’s Media & Technology Committee share their insights, observations and tricks of the trade

Up and running since October 2005, Mode is dedicated to exploring museums, design and everything in between.

I read Jim Spadaccini’s co-authored paper Community Sites and Emerging Sociable Technologies  on I’d been thinking of researching the effect of web 2.0 on Museum learning and this paper set out the case beautifully.  His biography on archimuse gave me the link to his ideum blog.
