History on the Hoof

Some Brainstorming Questions for our Session. Sat. 2:45

How do you link interest in scattered sites, through mobile phone “history on the hoof” using curiosity about one place to stimulate hook-ups to other remote sites?

How do you get material culture back into the world from where it was once looted, whoops, I mean , collected?

How can modern technologies dialogue with older artistic techniques in interesting ways?

How do you deploy digitized collections to do active things, picking up on “history translation device” potential of the mobile, so museum collections project into travel and field?

How can mobile be motivator so obscure topics — say War of 1812 — can quickly flash little-known angles and controversies that may engage further interest? (telling bits to hook interest in larger narrative).
