Views are mine.
Thoughts are my own.
Anything I say has nothing to do with my institution.
These are the CYA clauses for today’s museum technologist, distancing themselves from the possibility of repercussions should they inadvertently say something that their museum doesn’t agree with. They are Miranda Rights for the digital age:
“You have the right not to tweet or blog. Anything you tweet or blog can and will be used against you.”
“You have the right not to Facebook. Anything you do Facebook can and will be used against you at your next job interview.”
“You have the right not to over-inflate your LinkedIn resume. Anything you do post to your LinkedIn resume can and will be blindly endorsed by your connections.”
“You have the right to a Wikipedian. If you cannot afford a Wikipedian, one will be appointed for you.”
How I wish that last one was true…
