HP and the Newseum at the intersection of technology and media

HP chief marketing officer Michael Mendenhall wrote in The Daily Beast last week that “information technology has democratized the news, its readership, its dissemination, even its creation.” There will be no better place to see the evolution of technology and media than at the HP New Media Gallery at Washington, D.C.’s Newseum, scheduled to open in 2012.

At the announcement of the gallery on September 30, Shelby Coffey, Newseum Senior Fellow and Trustee noted that “This gallery will position the Newseum for the future of media.”
