Nina Simon: The museum of 'and' - Santa Cruz Sentinel
"American culture prioritizes a winner-take-all mentality that emphasizes "or," not "and." This single-winner mindset limits the imagination when we talk about change in organizations and our community. "And" opens up possibilities. I hope that we as a community can revel in the nuance, opportunity, and creative tension of the museum of "and.""

CSV now, or APIs/Linked Data later? | Richard's WP blog
"If a museum simply spits out a CSV file of collections data, it is missing a major opportunity to publish its collection, authoritatively, and to do so in a way which allows others to build on that core information set, comment on it, “like” objects in the collection, etc. It is also requiring anyone who wants to use that information to process it first, interpret it as best they can, and store the results of that additional work somewhere where no-one else can benefit from it. Neither party benefits from this."

"The events of recent months, and the cuts that are still to come, are not a temporary aberration. This is not a bump in the road. Museums are entering a new era. We are a country in crisis. A country at war. We have a Coalition that does not fundamentally believe that culture should be funded by the taxpayer. This is not a question of sitting it out, of waiting for the sun to shine again."
