Wouldn’t it be cool if the big National Museums – Tate, V&A, British Museum etc etc donated their digital teams to regional museums for 24 hours every couple of month.

(yes I know there are a million and one reasons why this wouldn’t work – but forget them, and you have to admit this would be a great way to drag regional museums into the 21st Century to get them excited about whats possible, and move regional museums beyond conversations about limited resources, money, and staff, to conversations around how can digital tech make us a better, stronger more engaged museum for our visitors and community….. )
Twitter update – seems to be a popular idea
