The Times reports on the impending opening of the for-profit Museum of Sex on 5th Avenue and 27th Street.
The guy behind the museum, Daniel Gluck, has been described in press reports as a “former software executive,” but I’ve been unable to find out his tech connection. When he started this project, he was teamed with artist Alison Maddex and her partner, the academic Camille Paglia. At the end of 2000, however, Maddex and Paglia apparently split with Gluck and the project.
There is a tech connection with the Museum of Sex: software developer, philanthropist, and art maven Peter Norton had some money in the project, back when it was still a non-profit. I don’t know if Norton is still involved.
