The Good, the Bad, the Ugly? Thoughts about museums, media and their consumers
- Harald Kraemer, School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong S.A.R.
Since the 1990s, multimedia technology has had a growing impact on communication and education in museums. Museums have spent enormous effort in the production of multimedia applications for kiosk systems, audio guides, portables, silver discs, websites, apps, etc. In the face of the growing loss of the products of our digital cultural heritage, the question remains how we can ensure that future generations will have access to the hypermedia applications created by museums.
