FORUM is an issue-based interactive multimedia forum on innovation
and technology that solicits real-time comments from its viewers.
The exhibit features real-time ability for visitors to record and
playback audio/video comments.
After being inspired by a series of interviews from a diverse virtual
panel of selected professionals, a museum visitor may add their
personal comments on innovation and technology to a collective real-time
"visitors forum" that may be accessed by other museum
visitor interaction, the INNOVATION FORUM provides discourse and
dialog by varied 'professionals' talking on a wide range of issues
concerning innovations and technology, primarily technological innovations,
that have affected our lives, our work and our global culture and
society. It is our interest that the educational content of this
exhibit be diversified, provocative, informative and inspirational
to encourage museum visitors to comment on issues of innovation

in many fields ranging from: Scientists, Doctors, Urban Planners/Community
Activists, Cosmologists, Futurists, Ethicists, and others. The interviewees
