Can you help me find great examples of museums making use of free social web apps?
I'm preparing a presentation on how museums, particularly small museums, can make use of the power of free social web applications to build relationships and raise institutional profiles. I'd like to find really good examples of museums making use of the post-blog generation of web apps. Here are some examples of the type of thing I'd like to find more of:
The Brooklyn Museum invites users to upload their own pictures of the Brookyn Bridge to a Flickr pool
which is then linked to an exhibit partially hosted on their website
Mystic Seaport creates a few episodes of a web show
The Library of Congress
uploads a photo collection to Flickr to seek identifying information and experiment with tagging.
The Chicago History Museum
presents a documentary on low-riders commissioned for their car exhibit on YouTube.
The Chumash Indian Museum on VoiceThread
The Second Louvre
- the Louvre itself recreated on Second Life (not free to develop, of course, but interesting anyhow as an example of one direction things can go for brick-and-mortar museums).
The only things I'm not interested in taking a look at are things that museums are doing completely on their own websites, and blogs, unless the blogs are somehow uniquely fantastic and paradigm-changing.
Also, If you have any thoughts about how museums could make innovative use of these applications, I'm all ears!
