A new approach to "museums" -- Part II

Ideally, an exhibit should have all the benefits of a website -- a museum exhibit has the advantage of reality ... more tangible demonstrations, deeper interactivity, human interaction, workshops, demonstrations etc. But it should also be a place where you can sit down and delve into the subject more deeply, take notes, bookmark and annotate ideas, save them, buy something that relates, etc.

The easiest way to do this is to cluster exhibits into issues & subjects, and have staff there to rent & sell items, orient research, make demonstrations, answer questions etc. And then to have computers there, with access to the web, that let you investigate further, make notes, comment, act, etc.
