The Future of Museums recently posted an update to their blog roll (the blogs they follow) and I am honored they chose to add this one. Since they are one of my fantastic resources for cutting-edge thinking about museums – through their Tweets, blog, and TrendWatch reports – to be included as one of their go-to sources is a real thrill.
Here’s what they had to say about little-old Mooshme:
The last two additions to the list report from the front lines of museum practice. Barry Joseph, Associate Director for Digital Learning uses Moosha Moosha Mooshme to share his latest projects at the American Museum of Natural History. Games design, augmented reality, 3D scanning and printing—Barry has the kids in the AMNH Youth Initiatives mastering skills many museum staff will envy. Thanks to Barry, I understand how Minecraft is more than just a video game. It’s a whole virtual world in which you can grow trees. And dinosaurs. When I’m populating the “Museum Examples” sections of TrendsWatch for technology trends, I often peek at Mooshme to see what Barry is up to.
