Well, Kia Ora everyone – Firstly, I’d like to introduce myself, I’m Filipo Katavake-McGrath, the communications person here at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa and you can find out more about me here
I’m going to start up a discussion, the first of many for the next year … basically I’d like to keep tabs on what our blog-readers, friends, cohorts think about the online experience with Te Papa.
SO… QUESTION ONE: Tell me about what Te Papa means to you? Is it a friend? A foe? Does it excite you? Does Te Papa really p**s you off at times? Is there some other way you express what it means? Does it not really mean that much to you at all?
And… why? Why do you feel the way you do about Te Papa (or not?)
Think of this as an informal conversation, hopefully I’ll get some comments which will generate new strands of discussion and also hopefully in the mix I’ll throw in some crazy ideas as problem-solving suggestions (my colleagues are quickly realising, I’m the crazy ideas guy).
RULES OF ENGAGEMENT: 1) Answer the questions … just get it off your chest… don’t be afraid to say what you feel (I know the majority of us kiwi’s don’t do that we just simmer never get it out … just say it!)
2) Be honest – if there’s something negative, say it but don’t say it for rudeness sake, explain why you feel that way as a member of the community who relates with Te Papa.
3) Don’t be a hater – don’t denigrate the responses of other people, our webmaster team will take care of clearly abusive responses… keep our eyes on the prize (sharing our views).
4) And if you want to say something, but don’t want everyone to see it… you can email it to me firstname.lastname@example.org put Blog Response in the subject line
Go to it, hope to hear from you all soon… ‘Lipo )
