Sometimes good things come from bad things


I've mentioned before that I really like the idea of audio guides by cell phones, and how it is not expensive at all to set up. Well, according to this article in today's New York Times the Guggenheim Museum (an institution that I am not particularly fond of) is doing the exact opposite and leveraging extremely old school technology, something called conversation. They have trained their guides to be guards or their guards to be guides. Strangely enough it sounds pretty much like what I do here when people walk in the door. Cool!
