My boss, Peter Dueker, was on the Kojo Nnamdi show this morning, talking about the National Gallery of Art's digital imaging initiatives as well as some fascinating issues concerning the reproduction of works of art, free access, and what it means for museums, scholars, and fans of fine art. He and the other guests did a great job, and the discussion can be heard here. If you've ever wondered what it is, exactly, that I do for a living, wonder no more!
