"The British Museum is [...] seeking free help on its website and other “products” from experienced coders in the guise, naturally, of an unpaid internship or “student placement” with its “Digital Team.”[...] the three responsibilities outlined in the ad:Mostafa Heddaya, 'British Museum Wants Someone to Update Its Website for Free', Hyperallergic, September 8, 2014.

“Researching solutions for technical problems and new web and mobile products”
“Participating in brainstorming about new digital products”
