Public History Gets an App!

A great group of graduate students and staff at my alma mater, Carleton University, made an app for the entire length of the Rideau Canal.  

It is called “The Rideau Canal App” and it is free at the iTunes store.  If you live in Ottawa and walk along the Canal, like I did every day going to campus, or like to boat on the Canal in the summer, or just think history is cool and want a fancy FREE app to show that off to other people then download it ASAP.

Still not sold?  Check out Jim Opp promoting the app for the CTV Ottawa morning show.  

PS.  There is going to be an increase in the public history content on the blog for the duration of the summer since I am a public historian again (more on that later).

PPS.  Most of that public history stuff will be about Sam Steele.  He is on twitter now and you should follow him @SirSamSteele.
