Museums of the Pacific Islands Region Online

Its Asia Pacific Week at the Australian National University and museum directors from around the region are meeting in Canberra. I gave them a presentation on using the web for museums, based on the week long workshop conducted in Samoa in mid year and the research a student I supervised on the semantic web.

If you are using the Firefox or Opera browser (not MS-IE) you can select "View > Page Style > Projection" from the pull down menus to see the slides from the
presentation or workshop.

I was asked at the workshop how appropriate web adverting was for a museum web site. So I put it to the test with ads on my notes. I had to block a few get-rich-quick schemes, but then I got reasonable ads for reasonable museum things. If you see any inappropriate ads, let me know.
