Put yourself out there on the web
Everyone – every artist, big or small, every museum, big or small, should be on the web and be seen, be active and do the right and necessary thing. But not everyone has a big budget.
To solve this dilemma, we can go the Lean Way. Based on the ideas of Lean Startup and Lean UX, this means identifying what is most important and starting small and building up from there, using standard tools and focusing on the outcome.

Another SXSW-inspired post – about something that has kept me thinking at least since fall 2009: what can we learn from game designers about how to design interfaces for complex applications? The basic idea is: applications present you with their full set of features from the get-go, maybe give you a little video and their help and that is that. It’s a bit like being dropped in the middle of the jungle with a map and a pat on the back: good luck old chap, you’ll figure it out. Most users never progress beyond a simple set of tools they quickly get familiar with and never venture any further, forever using the space-bar instead of tabs to position text.
