Seb Chan, Head of Digital, Social and Emerging Technologies, Powerhouse Museum, just mentioned they will be releasing a Wordpress plugin to allow metadata from the musium collection to be automatically included in blog posts. They also have been participating in the Museum Metadata Exchange (MME) project. He gave an an example of a possible mash-up would be to include historical photos from the museum with development application to the Mosman Council.
