Making Process Visible & A Lesson In Web Design: Mario Botta at Bechtler Museum

Making Process Visible & A Lesson In Web Design: Mario Botta at Bechtler Museum | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Curator As Hero
I won't copy my linked GPlus (https://plus.google.com/102639884404823294558/posts/3KLUrc157bC ) post except to say look at the ceiling. I left the top of this image so you can see THE LIGHTS.

I like to do this exercise in department stores too. Looking at the lights gives you a sense for how some a hard working team created the subtle emphasis that now guides your learning and eye. Seeing the lighting always tells you how DRAMATIC the act of curating is too.

NOW ask yourself how you create drama, emphasis, light and shadow on your website? I share more #webdesign thoughts on the linked post. Bravo to the team at the Bechtler Museum in Charlotte, NC for their hard work on the Mario Botta exhibit. KUDOS!

Is Your Content Getting Outside of YOUR Musuem? Discovery Place Charlotte

Is Your Content Getting Outside of YOUR Musuem? Discovery Place Charlotte | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it
Discovery Place, Charlotte’s Science Museum, is a family-friendly attraction with fun educational events, shows, IMAX, 3D films and live animals.


Marty Note
In Charlotte for the Search Exchange Conference and saw an interesting idea at lunch. The Charlotte Discovery Museum puts exhibits out on the sidewalk.

What a concept. Everyday at lunch thousands stream by the museum. Instead of staying locked up in their box they bring cool exhibits out to the sidewalk.

The relevant question is what are you doing  to move your online content and community metaphorically out to the sidewalk? Here are my favorite ways to go to the people:

* Conferences and events.
* Meetups and classes.
* Find the _______ to win __________ (these modern treasure hunts have exploded on social / mobile web).
* Free Consulting Sundays (promise to bring these back soon).
* Free Lunch Fridays (have lunch on a Hangout & invite anyone interested in your topic. Be sure to schedule cool topics.
* Meet ___________ at _____________ If you can get Seth Godin to come hangout with you do so. If not think who you can hangout with & invite others.
* Startup Weekends & Hackathons.
* Online "telethons" (stolen from my friend Gregory Ng).

* Ride a bicycle across America (NOT recommended lol).
* Speak at conferences like Phil is at SearchEx and I am at FedEx Ecom Strategies Conference in Raleigh tomorrow.

What about you? How to you get your act out and on the road. What do you like to do to add a sense of touch and reality to your virtual identity?
