First to Washington to present the George Brown Goode Memorial Lecture at the Smithsonian (talk titled How Web 2.0 is Changing the Nature of Museum Work), then to the American Association of Museums Conference in Los Angeles (presentation titled The Museum’s new website: transforming educational audiences).
