HP to Fund Newseum Gallery on Technology’s Impact on Media

The  Newseum and the technology giant HP announced their joint partnership to create a new hands-on media gallery focusing on technology’s impact on the news industry.

The HP New Media Gallery, scheduled to open in early 2012, will provide an immersive experience that will enable Newseum visitors from around the globe to explore technology’s role in the democratization of content and news. The gallery will aim to show how technology has drastically changed the collection and dissemination of news, empowering citizens while challenging traditional media business models.

HP will support the project with $5 million over the next 10 years.
