Hot off the “press” the Horizon Report>2012 Museum Edition is available today.Â There is a terrific little 3 minute video–for friends and colleagues who prefer a quick video introduction to the information)–and the press relief.Â You can download a pdf of the full report.
Had great crowd at the MIDEA Connect webinar launching the report today (January 16, 2013).Â The audience was pretty evenly split between technologists and educators and the conversation was lively.Â Thanks to all the advisory board members who came and stayed and played too.
