Last week, the Met's Twitter feed marked the twentieth anniversary of the launch of the Museum's website. A look back at the press release, "Metropolitan Museum to inaugurate Internet homepage on World Wide Web," shows how forward-thinking the Met was at the time (this is almost two years before google.com was registered as a domain and before some major U.S. universities had launched their sites). It also shows how far we and the world of technology have come since then. Along the way, the Met created a Digital Media Department, about six years ago.

One of the many lessons I've learned in my first 10 months on the job at the Met is how much attention is paid to everything we do here. Having worked at Columbia Journalism School for two decades, I am familiar with the amount of interest journalists take in the activities of a major institution (especially when most alumni are journalists themselves).
Because of the Met's reputation, scale, and history, our activities get a lot of scrutiny. I wrote recently about the social media traction that we got thanks to the annual #MetGala, and the Webby Award for our Instagram account.
But nothing quite prepared me for the amount of press, blogger, and social media attention we've gotten for our recently updated image use policy.

It's been a memorable couple of Mondays for the Met's social media efforts.

As I discussed in my first Digital Underground post, my Met colleagues do a lot of terrific digital and multimedia work. In an effort to get more attention to some of this work, I occasionally do interviews with the press. Recently, I was a guest on "Conversations in the Digital Age with Jim Zirin," a show that looks at "how the Internet is transforming the global landscape."

Welcome to Digital Underground, one of many blogs at the Met.
"Blogs at the Met," you say? Perhaps, like many folks, you aren't yet aware of all the awesome digital output of the Museum. My goal in this post as well as in the weeks, months, and years ahead is to share with you all the digital work that goes on at the Met and The Cloisters.
The Digital Department leads the creation, production, presentation, and dissemination of multimedia content to support the viewing and understanding of the Met's collection and exhibitions, both within the galleries and online. This blog discusses a few of the activities of the department, and invites your questions and comments about the Museum's digital initiatives.
