Jennifer Trant posted about the reaction of the Museums and the Web copy editor to the papers about interactive papers for this year’s conference:

“Rather than thinking about the Web site as a reference work, our editor had repositioned it and herself. The museum was no-longer a remote information resource. The technology had become an enabler in the museum space, that made it possible for her to record the story that interested her.”

I think that’s the type of response that makes the movement towards the user-focused/participatory web so worthwhile.
