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."
Mr. Zirin, a lawyer and friend of the Met, has been hosting his show, which runs on WNYE-TV in NYC and a variety of satellite and cable systems, for 15 years now. We had a 30-minute conversation about digital initiatives at the Met and he showed excerpts of some of our videos.
As you can see from browsing our website and from watching the YouTube version below, the answer to the episode's title question—"Has the Met Gone Digital?"—is a resounding yes.
