The roundtable focussed on two major items of discussion:

  • How do we measure the economic and social value of cultural websites? This will raise issues of metrics, evaluation etc.
    Speaker:Seb Chan, Powerhouse Museum
  • A report on the recent survey of sites carried out by Culturemondo.
    What trends, issues and future directions are suggested by the survey?
    Speaker: Jane Finnis, Culture24

Attendance at the roundtable was from a mixture of those running cultural websites and services within New Zealand, plus several international guests from The Netherlands, Taiwan, Australia and Luxembourg.
