The MuseumMobile wiki is an outgrowth of Tate’s Handheld Conference Wiki, which was initially developed for a September 2008 conference hosted by Tate Modern.

It is a free public wiki and continues to grow as a repository for resources, best practice, and conversation about mobile interpretation and technologies for museums and cultural sites.

It includes the project pages for the Museums to Go open source/open platform mobile development project among others. We also capture tweets that use the #mtogo hashtag here.  [download here]
