ABSTRACT OF TALK
Few of us dispute the importance of providing access to our cultural heritage. Yet we still seem years away from fulfilling the promises of access: opening long-dormant archives, enriching culture and begetting creativity, and turning cultural consumers into producers. What can we do, and what are we now doing, to resolve obstacles to access, whether rooted in financial, legal or quality concerns? Focusing on how we might navigate these obstacles and turn them into opportunities, our panelists will discuss what they have done to provide access to cultural assets, how their mindsets about access have developed, and where they hope cultural access will evolve.
Odysseys in Technology, A Computer History Museum Speaker Series Sponsored by Sun Microsystems Laboratories, presents people and perspectives behind extraordinary innovations and advancements in the computer technology-related world. Each event in the Series provides stimulating interaction with authentic experts whose achievements have transformed how things are done or viewed, and to examine how their personal stories might inform the present and future. These programs occasionally feature technologies or point events, with the objective to apply lessons of history to present day understanding and inspiration.
