Wayfinder

My gal Meghan (a PhD student at University of Washington in Seattle) is working on her dissertation and has created a very interesting website for her research project.wayfinder310.jpg

It’s called Wayfinder and it’s a web-based tool to help people explore online archives. This specific site is linked to an archive of political campaign websites, but the future applications of this tool are limitless, especially to art museum collections and other archives of visual material.

She’s hoping that anyone interested will go to the site, create an account, and investigate!

  1. I’d like to talk with you more about wayfinder — particularly how ‘exhibits’ work. It’s an interesting project, but i’m lost with some of its features.
