Eight years ago, Ideum and an extraordinary group of creative partners received a grant from the National Science Foundation to develop and disseminate Open Exhibits, “a free suite of original, multitouch-enabled, open source exhibit software.” The idea was to develop software that museums large and small could use and modify, and to develop a community of practice to share emerging approaches in digital exhibit design.
