Designing for Change: Predicting the Future of Mobile Experiences




In his presentation, Rob will examine how museums can get ahead of the curve and anticipate changes in mobile technology responding quickly when the next-big-thing comes along. Rob will show how a focus on the mobile content we produce and the museum's workflows for building that content will allow a quick and adept response to whatever technical shift comes next.

Robert Stein is the Chief Information Officer at the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA). In that role, Stein leads the museum’s IT, Web and New Media teams and has played a significant role in shaping the way that the IMA has applied technology and media to the mission of the museum. In 2007, Stein and the IMA launched the IMA Dashboard (http://dashboard.imamuseum.org), a pioneering effort that supports and encourages transparency among museums, and have since released the tool as open source for the benefit of other institutions. More recently, the IMA created and published TAP, an open-source mobile tour platform to help museums author and distribute mobile content both in the galleries and online. In 2009, Stein and colleagues from the IMA launched the streaming video website, ArtBabble.org. Awarded the 2009 AAM MUSE Award for Best Online Presence and the 2010 Best Overall Site award from the International Conference of Museums and the Web, ArtBabble brings together 23 prominent cultural organizations to create a true destination for art video online. Stein has also been instrumental in the success of the Steve.Museum social tagging project serving as both Project Director and Technical Lead on several of the project’s grant initiatives. He continues to advocate for the ways in which user generated data can be integrated with museum practice. Stein currently serves as Secretary on the Board of the Museum Computer Network and continues to be active in speaking and writing on topics related to museum transparency and technology and seeks to encourage the adoption of open-source tools and platforms.
