A wonderful, thought-provoking post by John Hennessy at Fredericksburg Remembered. Static, on site interpretative devices like the battlefield wayside exhibit will likely be replaced by wireless digital media in the not too distant future. And consumers will also likely have a number of sources from which to choose. While it’s true that such services will not be cheap to produce, I’m not sure that means all of them will be commercial ventures. I suspect there are a number of folks out there who might be motivated to develop these programs by the same forces that compel them to share their research free of charge in the forms of websites and blogs. Giving it away is still a great way to stick it to the man.
Those guys at Fredericksburg always provide great food for thought.
