Everybody is trying to do too much at once. Find the low hanging fruit and pick it. Get the boxes off the floor. Release early and release often. Put things out there and find out how you should be doing things. I think this idea cuts across all parts of digital cultural heritage work. Everything from, collecting, processing, arranging, preserving, making available, and exhibiting can be re-framed in this mindset. This was the primary sentiment I put forward in my Keynote talk at the Connecticut Digital Initiatives Forum. At some point I might sit down and write this out, but I figured I would share it here.
Also, here are the slides in case you would prefer to see the presentation instead of sitting through my yammering.
I went up to talk viewshare, but was then also delighted/dismayed to be asked to give the Keynote. I think it went well, and I was apparently on TV across the great state of Connecticut.
