I am an unabashed history buff. Ever since I was a young boy, I loved reading books, hearing stories, and watching movies about historical events. It was no surprise then that I completed a history minor while pursuing my undergraduate degree.
This past month, it was my pleasure to speak to the Class of 2008 of the Seminar for Historical Administration. This three-week seminar brings rising leaders from a variety of historical sites, museums, and societies together for an intensive program designed to shape the next generation of industry leaders. It made sense then that digital and social media would be a part of that education.
As I promised the group, I have compiled a list of resource links for them to use and share with their key stakeholders.

Thanks to all the seminarians for an highly engaged conversation about the Internet and history. We look forward to next year’s 50th Seminar for Historical Administration.
