'I get a lot of links in my network to Pixar’s 22 Rules of Storytelling compiled by a Pixarian named Emma Coats. It’s certainly useful advice for storytellers, as far as it goes.

Our interdisciplinary team at Duke University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Waterloo has just launched a new "transmedia game" or "alternate reality game" called Speculation. This science fiction game concerns the culture of finance and the recent economic crisis. Transmedia games are an emergent art form and storytelling practice that taps into contemporary convergence culture. The most recent trailer leads to the primary Speculation game site. Players can also follow updates on Facebook by friending Nex Noitaluceps.
The first puzzles and narrative fragments were released on Tuesday so there's plenty of time to get in on the ground floor and join the collaborative game community on the main site or in other locations such as the player-created Unfiction forum. The next part of the game will be released on Sunday (April 22) at midnight ET. Everyone is invited to join the collective transmedia play, the discussion forums, and the unfolding narrative.

He's created a short film called Van Gogh's Shadow which shows over a dozen of Van Gogh’s paintings suddenly filled with life and movement, perhaps giving us an insight into how the artist may have seen the world he lived in.
Content was a driving force for many businesses in 2012, because when you give people something that’s valuable, you help build a relationship that means people will be much more likely to pay attention to your organization in the future.
The purely sociopathic Grand Theft Auto player just seems like another character in a narrative designed to critique the game's shortcomings as a game, more a straw man than any real player that I know (or am).
