29 May 1930, Korneuburger Eid Wir wollen Österreich von Grund auf erneuern! Wir wollen den Volksstaat des Heimatschutzes. Wir fordern von den Kameraden: den unverzagten Glauben ans Vaterland, den rastlosen Eifer der Mitarbeit und die leidenschaftliche Liebe zur Heimat. Wir verwerfen den westlichen demokratischen Parlamentarismus und den Parteienstaat. Wir wollen an seine Stelle die Selbstverwaltung der Stände setzen und eine starke Staatsführung die nicht aus Parteienvertretern, sondern aus den führenden Personen der großen Stände und aus den fähigsten und den bewährtesten Männern unserer Volksbewegung gebildet wird. Wir kämpfen gegen die Zersetzung unseres Volkes durch den marxistischen Klassenkampf und liberal-kapitalistische Wirtschaftsgestaltung. Jeder Kamerad fühle und bekenne sich als Träger der neuen deutschen Staatsgesinnung; er sei bereit Gut und Blut einzusetzen, er kenne die drei Gewalten: den Gottesglauben, seinen eigenen harten Willen, das Wort seiner Führer. 29

30 Korneuburger Eid - translation by Google Language Tools We want to Austria from the ground to renew! We want the people of the state heritage. We urge the comrades: unshrinking faith to the fatherland, the tireless zeal for work and the passionate love of the homeland. We reject the Western democratic parliamentary party and the state. We want his body to the government of the stands and a strong governance not based on party representatives, but from the leading persons of the large booths and the most skilled and best men of our grassroots movement is formed. We are fighting against the degradation of our people by the Marxist class struggle and liberal-capitalist economic organization. Every comrade feel and confess themselves as promoters of the new German state of mind, he was good and ready to use blood, he knew the three powers: the faith of God, his own fierce determination, the word of its leaders. 30

43 Why this title for the presentation? follow to Online Stuff follow to Communications and Computing follow to Dumbing down science The full quote Scientists are trained to sterilise their writing style, with any evidence of literary talent deliberately anaesthetised. It is as if writing in the passive voice will somehow enhance the objectivity of the data by diverting attention from the human hand behind the experiment. And when the subject we is invoked in the scientific text, it certainly does not extend to the public. 43

44 The argument Science involves people There is always a story behind When scientists communicate they leave out the story they talk jargon they lose the general public as audience Use ICT to tell the story Interact with the general public That does not mean to banalise science 44

45 Museum Function of a Museum: collect, conserve, research, exhibit The museum was designed by people for people. Its use is voluntary, but requires a personal need and familiarity with its particular language. Its guests are lay people who want to spend their spare time usefully and pleasantly. In order for the museum to provide the best possible service, it must know the attitudes and desires of its audience. Museum visits are mainly joint/shared experiences. 45

46 Virtual Museum Provide contents that is otherwise not available (or that is not accessible in the real museum) Use the Internet for more than as a mere storage medium i.e. as a medium enabling interaction and creativity 46

47 Goals Provide explanations around artifacts of an exhibition Connect artifacts of an exhibition to others (e.g. to ones that are for whatever reason not available in the exhibition) Invite visitors to interact with the artifacts Invite visitors to share their thoughts about the exhibition Invite visitors to contribute artifacts Create a living exhibition as a learning space 47
