House of the Muse

Filed under: General — m759 @ 2:56 AM

Everett Ellin, pioneer of art museum technology, died on September 16th.

"But now, at long last, the computer has entered the house of the Muse and— like the man who came to dinner— the guest is here to stay. It would behoove the host to know something about his visitor’s care and feeding."
