Malls, Masses & Myths
After the riots which, if I read Dave Haslam in Manchester, England right, seem to have historical resonance with the Exchange Riots of 1812, rather than Peterloo in 1819, being an inchoate expression of frustration, Manchester has been cleaning itself up and asserting a civic identity with I Love MCR.

July 14 MOSI
MOSI; Artefact Curation. Following the model established by the RunCoCo project we will have a Curator Day on July 14 where the Science Curator will discuss her work at MOSI, view the collection and review those computer artefacts that have been booked in for the session. This runs from 10-12.30 on Thursday July 14th at MOSI.
Photos from the MOSI-Computer Collection; These can be viewed on Fickr and we will endeavour to produce a brief QRpedia-like description for the computer in each photo, and also to gather stories and memories from people who used them and have stories of various kinds to add to the QRpedia description.
We plan to crowd-source the curation of these photos on July 14th and we will set up a process to support this beyond the Flickr Communities on the day. We will update this web page as we develop the process. We will be working with GLAMwiki expert Cormac Lawler (@cormaggio) as we do this. We will update changes and provide new information using the MOSI-ALONG Twitter account (http://twitter.com/mosi_along) during the day.
