I hope you'll take a couple of minutes (3:30 to be exact) to let me say "So long, and thanks for all the fish" in this video. It has been a great three weeks, and with your advice and support, we have moved the thinking along a great deal.
Now it's time to roll up our sleeves and get to work on this. We need three kinds of things as we move ahead:
Advice (please -- keep in touch and tell us what you think)
Stuff (links, archival material, photos, videos, interviews, virtual tours, old newspaper clippings, etc.)
Help (we need people who are willing to take on support roles as we move the project forward)
All of this will be managed, for the time being, on a wiki that the Learning Technologies Centre at University of Manitoba set up: http://ltc.umanitoba.ca/histedtech/ Thanks George!
Sylvia has already added some content on the main page, and created 2 more pages:
1. Acquisitions - A place to add your links to artefacts, stories, interviews, biographies, timelines, etc. I've mined a few tidbits from our SCoPE discussion.
2. Volunteers - A place to add and sign up for jobs To create an account just click on "create account" at the top right of the main page. Thanks, Sylvia!
A wiki that summarizes our discussion from the past three weeks.

So, on behalf of the current "Museum Team" and with thanks to all of you for joining in and contributing so generously this month, I'll close the session with a quote from Ellen Goodman.
"There’s a trick to the “graceful exit.” It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over — and let it go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up, rather than out."
