Hi everyone: Session proposals for the American Association of Museums’ Annual Conference in Seattle (May 18-21, 2014) are due August 26th. Get them in now! Every year, the Media & Technology Professional Network looks for people to teach detailed, often hands-on workshops called Tech Tutorials.

Thought I’d jump back in here folks because I’ve just returned from a wonderful, engaging, enlightening, and highly entertaining AAM 2012.
Just wanted to announce that the 2011 Horizon Report>Museum Edition has gone to press (and was officially launched at MCN in Atlanta last week).

Things aren’t usually this hard, but it has been a couple of years since several of us began talking about how nice it would be to get together with colleagues between MCN conferences (or, for the lucky among us, MCN and Museums and the Web).
