HP Gives $5 Million Gift To Newseum
By: Mike Sachoff
Newseum said today it has received a $5 million gift from HP to design and build a new gallery focused on the changing media landscape in an effort to help people better understand the impact technology has on news.
The three main goals are :
*Increase news literacy by showcasing the dramatic changes taking place in the hyperlinked world of contemporary media
*Engage and educate visitors with compelling content, turning streams of digital data into relevant, usable information.
*Create a new user experience in which the human/technology interface is seamless, intuitive and entertaining while also being educational.
"At HP, our technology is harnessing the power of information to change the equation for people, businesses and the world," said Michael Mendenhall, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at HP.
"This interactive, innovative venture from Newseum will examine what the changing equation means for the news media and news consumers around the world."
The HP New Media Gallery at the Newseum will be constructed on Level 4 of the Newseum in a space that was part of the museum's original design but has not yet been developed. The new gallery will use interactive media to explain the history of new media, illustrate how technology is transforming the ways people receive news, and showcase interesting new developments in the digital news realm.
