Free or nearly free ways museums can use Web 2.0

An article that I wrote for the July/August issue of the Association of Science-Technology Center’s Dimensions magazine is now available online.  Appropriately for these economic times, the issue focuses on ways in which science centers can save money and do more with less.

The article,  Nine Free or Nearly Free Ways Museums Can Take Advantage of Web 2.0 covers a variety of Web-based services and touches on some of the open source initiatives that are now available to museums. I also list a number of inspirational examples, demonstrating how science centers and other museums are using Web 2.0 technologies.
