Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and the Newseum, an interactive museum devoted to issues related to the news media and society, today announced they are collaborating on a new, hands-on media gallery that will allow Newseum visitors to explore technology’s impact on the ever-evolving way that information is reported, distributed and accessed.
Social media tools are empowering individuals by offering platforms for networking and exchanging ideas, revolutionizing the way people connect and communicate. This gallery will be continually changing to reflect that landscape.
“At HP, our technology is harnessing the power of information to change the equation for people, businesses and society,” said Michael Mendenhall, senior VP and chief marketing officer, HP. “This interactive, innovative venture will examine what the changing equation means for the news media and news consumers around the world.”
The HP New Media Gallery is projected to open in early 2012.
