Weeknotes: 23.2016 – deep into project work
A belated weeknotes for week 23, apologies. It was a quieter week for FGW the week before last week; with several different projects on the go we all had our heads buried in data, reports and frameworks.
Alyson and Lindsey were presenting findings from the discovery phase at the National Gallery, the next steps are brand development and the beginning of the content strategy. I was wading through data from our Science Museum mobile research, working on recruiting for the ss Great Britain qualitative research and preparing for We Are Museums in Bucharest. Laura was working on her report for the Bloomberg grantees project and the Evaluation Framework for AMNH.
We’ve also been working on some new bios for the website, up soon, and other aspects of how we communicate what we do. So, not a great deal to report this week, but next week will include a write up of We Are Museums so look out for that. And in the meantime, have a look at what we’ve been reading, in the brief moments when we’ve come up for air.

- An interesting article about long form and short form content. Turns out the length of time spent looking at long form articles has a lot to do with how people came to it and time of day. Facebook delivers more traffic but Twitter users spend longer reading the articles. Surprisingly, mobile and long form content do seem to go quite well together! http://www.journalism.org/2016/05/05/long-form-reading-shows-signs-of-life-in-our-mobile-news-world/
