We seem to have reached a tipping point in opensource development for mobile platforms: at Museums & the Web in April, a spontaneous gathering over lunch of more than 10 museums working on mobile projects resulted in the MuseumMobile Wiki to house the collaborative project pages. Since then the Dallas Museum of Art has already developed a prototype mobile web-based solution, which Ted Forbes demonstrates in a wonderful little video available both on the wiki and in the MuseumMobile podcast.
Join the opensource ‘Museums to Go’ collaboration on the wiki, and check out our ‘parent’ wiki as well with a wealth of resources collected around the 2008 Tate Handheld Conference. Both museums and vendors are contributing their best practices, solutions and code to the community with the aim of improving access and interpretation to collections around the world.
