The Bazinet Lobby kiosks were installed the day before our press event, along with the wireless network. This gives museum patrons a way to experience our website, and also gives them free wireless access to the internet in the front lobby should they need it. The goal at some point is to enable wifi in the entire building, but for now Bazinet Lobby is where it’s at. There are several tables next to the kioks for people with laptops, as well as the Orientation Rock to sit on and chill. And of course if you don’t have your own computer, the kiosks are there to use and enjoy as well.
Also, the building is now open! The opening events went well, particularly the member’s party, and while there were a few hiccups along the way (such is life in the technical world) we seem to have fixed the worst of it. It was a very long weekend for New Media (and every other dept at the Walker), but it was worth it. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should!
