The Museum Opens
This speculative fiction narrates the experience of a virtual museum environment in the near future. The description extends current capabilities of linked data, visualization, and computational analytics while adding features of virtual and augmented reality. The essay takes a skeptical view of the increased spectacularization of cultural memory experience even as it explores the potential for enriched research, pedagogy, and public knowledge that emerging technological platforms may provide.
