100 Years of Oversharing: Tools for Time Travel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A typed journal from WWI passed on through generations fuels a young man's dreams of time travel and allows us to explore the power of personal stories and photos. Together with archival collections, these items take us through space and time, and the magical ability of cultural memory institutions to help individuals bring these incredibly compelling dreams to life. The World Wide Web provides the cultural, technological, and legal frameworks to open the doors to innovation and imagination, and also enables libraries, archives and museums the world over to play a critical role. We explore some of the diverse efforts to bring stories and memory to life in new ways, while also fostering open data and preservation, and the pros and cons at the intersection of public domain and private enterprise.
