These musings started as my self assigned “15 minute to comment on a story in the news.” I’ve been blowing my time limit, lately, so today I’m setting my stopwatch and sticking to my original intent: briefly commenting on an article I’ve shared via Twitter or Dispatches from the Future of Museums and explaining why I think it is worth paying attention to.
Stereopublic’s website says, “Welcome to a quieter world. People from many cities across the earth have been adding spaces of solace and retreat for you to find. Use the map to find your own space.” The app includes original music compositions associated with some pre-loaded sites. Other sites, tagged by the crowd, may include a picture, or just GPS coordinates.
So, my musing: wonder how many folks have their own secret “quiet space” in a museum, where they retreat to rest and reflect? Do you? I’m going to keep an eye on the app, to see how many museum galleries or courtyards, botanic gardens or historic sites show up on it’s roster. Just one more way to measure how people value, and use, our wonderful spaces.
14 minutes, 28 second: Boom, done. Mission accomplished. 🙂
