One of my favourite things about the recent entry of the Brooklyn Museum
into The Commons is the simple UI change we made to the main Commons page
. Now it displays a random sprinkle of content from across The Commons. We'll be introducing searching and tags and stuff soon.
The thing I like so much about this is that with just a little computer-y goodness, we are displaying a "blended collection", however random at this stage. I can't wait until we can browse around using the tags that people use to describe the photos. Polyvalence is a wonderful thing.
