Musee Virtuel de l'Absinthe - Le Monde des Antiquites d'Absinthe

by sbrothier
Absinthe...la fée verte..."The Green Fairy"...aucune autre boisson n'a la même histoire romantique - les impressionnistes Français...Toulouse Lautrec, Degas, Manet, Van Gogh...Paris à la Belle Époque...les cafés de Montmartre...la muse des écrivains, de Baudelaire et Rimbaud à Joyce et Hemingway. Évidemment, il y a aussi une face cachée: aucune boisson n'a suscité de condamnation plus fervente, et aucune autre boisson n'a été entièrement interdite comme l'absinthe le fut en 1915.

Arago: People, Postage & the Post

by sbrothier
The online database of the National Postal Museum, Arago™, was named in honor of the French physicist, astronomer and politician, François Arago (1786-1853). A friend of James Smithson (benefactor of the Smithsonian Institution), Arago believed that science and available technologies should be used to advance public knowledge and improve everyday life. Renowned as a scientist, he was also a humanitarian who used his political roles to introduce social reforms – the abolition of slavery, universal manhood suffrage, and the education of the lower classes – not only in France but also in its colonial possessions.

Absinthe at the Virtual Absinthe Museum

by sbrothier & 1 other (via)
Absinthe...the Green Fairy...La Fée Verte....no other drink has the same romantic history - the French Impressionists....Toulouse Lautrec, Degas, Manet, Van Gogh....Paris in the Belle Epoque....the cafes of Montmartre....the muse of writers from Verlaine and Rimbaud to Joyce and Hemingway. Of course, there's a darker side to absinthe as well - no other drink has ever roused the same degree of passionate condemnation, and no other drink has ever been banned outright in the way absinthe was in the years leading up to 1915.

Archives & Museum Informatics: Museums and the Web 2008: Papers: Marlow, J., et al., The Multimatch Project: Multilingual/Multimedia Access To Cultural Heritage On The Web

by sbrothier
The EU-funded MultiMatch project aims to overcome language barriers and media and distribution problems currently affecting access to on-line cultural heritage material. Partners are developing a vertical search engine able to harvest heterogeneous information from distributed sources and present it in a synthesized manner. To design such a system, user requirements were initially gathered and then translated into specific design features to ensure that the search engine developed was consistent with user needs. This paper presents these user requirements, the initial design of the MultiMatch system, and technical discussion of the system architecture and components used to turn these design implications into a working interactive prototype. Following this, we discuss user evaluation and present results from an initial user study. These are being used, in addition to other input, to drive the functionality and design of the final system.

SI NMNH - Jellyfish Romance - (Carybdea sivickisi)

by sbrothier (via)
For most jellyfish, reproduction is not a particularly romantic affair. Typically, males release sperm into the water so that their genetic material can bump into and fertilize eggs released by female jellyfish in a similar fashion. This behavior, known as mass spawning, allows jellyfish to “mate” without the lovers even needing to meet.
