I was at the opening night of the Life Online exhibition and galleries at the National Media Museum last night.

It was a great night, being able to celebrate with everyone else who has had a part in helping out , in whatever capacity, to get it all off the ground over the past few months (and years for some).

Particularly relieved and giddy must have been @tcwoolley@r0b_shaw and the rest of the @mediamuseum team who have created a massive exhibition and lived and breathed it for the last year or more.
Also well chuffed I’m sure are the artists including Ross Phillips and @chriskemm.

I didn’t know everyone of course but pretty much all had either a big grin or a look of fascination on their faces whilst looking around the Foyer Gallery (the history of the Internet) and also the 7th floor temporary exhibition (currently [open source]).

I can’t do it justice in a quick blog post.. have a look at the scale of the galleries / exhibitions on the link below – and get yourself to Bradford!


There’s a whole stack (naturally) of online resources also (that will keep growing)..

> Some film about [open source] on vimeo: http://vimeo.com/nationalmediamuseum/videos
> More film over on the Media Museum Youtube channel – including this great interview of Vint Cerf by Tom Woolley:

Tom Wooley talks to Vint Cerf about The Internet – past , present, future

And Vint amongst lots of others has contributed to the ‘Your Life Online’ companion / project website

I’m back there today at TEDx and Meet The Artists, best get going and get my geek on.
