Jake Barton's stirring TED talk about building collective memory and his work on the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, lending whole new meaning to the notion that "a museum is an institution dedicated to making connections."

The story that begins at 8:01 is nothing short of remarkable.

Also see Barton on the role of museums and memorials in society and the power of collaborative storytelling
