Rotating guest columnists on Museums 2.0 blog

This would be a "front page" way to get other voices on the main Museums 2.0 site. Could even be a regular feature. Nina could solicit postings a few weeks out and then every Friday could be "guest blog day".

Have a real project

I think all these strategies are much more better when there is something actually to do. What should we do? Anyone need the wisdom of this crowd for a project? If it is a compelling project, then we can find the right media/setting/environment to do it. I have an idea for a useful question for which I could use input from this group related to a project proposal that I am working on...actually two projects...one ...more »

pheromone exchange opportunities

I continue to be amazed at the impact of f2f vs virtually (pun intended) any other way of building community. Exhausting, expensive, but critical for creating a movement. We should be sure to get together whenever possible, either with specific agendas or just as brainstorming.

Secondary blog with rotating or guest columnists

This is another option for getting other "instigators" involved. Depending on the format, Nina could even syndicate some of the best postings on the main Museums 2.0 blog if she wanted to run a guest feature.

In-person conference or retreat?

This may be a little high-maintenance, but it could be great to actually get together and do a blitz or a retreat. Bring together some museum people, some tech people, and really talk about where we're going. Then again, maybe people are on conference overload.

Synching travel

Can we create a site where we share information on our travel schedules in order to facilitate meeting up face to face?

small social network (Ning or Facebook group) for ongoing discussion

If we had a social network, people could post whatever they want, find others to talk with, etc. The negative of this is that it requires going to the social network to engage. I'm not crazy about Ning for this reason.

A weekly open blog post or voicethread for comment conversation

Many blogs that have high readership have an "open thread" occasionally which specifically encourage conversation about whatever is on people's mind in the comments section. One of the negatives of the Museum 2.0 blog is how freaking long my posts are--they may preclude great conversation in the comments. But I wonder how useful this would be for people...
