We got together in Denver

Congratulations to the MW2010 Best of the Web Award Winners!

Museums and the Web is an annual conference exploring the social, cultural, design, technological, economic, and organizational issues of culture, science and heritage on-line. Taking an international perspective, MW reviews and analyzes the issues and impacts of networked cultural, natural and scientific heritage.

Our community has been meeting since 1997, imagining, tracking, analyzing, and influencing the role museums play on the Web, and having fun doing it.

MW featured plenary sessions, parallel sessions, un-conference sessions, museum project demonstrations, commercial exhibits, mini-workshops, professional forums, a usability lab, a design 'Crit Room,' and the Best of the Web awards.

Prior to the conference, there were full-day and half-day pre-conference workshops and a day of pre-conference tours.

Social events included receptions each evening, a Birds-of-a-Feather Lunch, and plenty of refreshment breaks provided lots of time to meet and talk with colleagues from around the world.
