Practical and important information, yes, but is this the best we can do? In 2011, a natural disaster placed Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū (Figure 31.1) in an unusual situation and gave us a story to tell. 1 Our attempts to work out what form that story should take, and how best to present it, changed the way we approached online content delivery.
