In 2012 when I began my time at the American Museum of Natural History, I created a new blog to talk about my adventures exploring issues related to digital media and museum-based learning. It featured original interviews, thought pieces, and highlights from my work and those of my colleagues at the AMNH. Starting in 2020, with the launch of Barry Joseph Consultancy, LLC, I turned this blog into a place to explore digital engagement writ large.
