Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 27, 2012 2:57 PM

Business can be complex. Leadership can be complex. Certainly our culture and society is complex.


This article gets us thinking -- and includes some fabulous advice -- about how storytelling can help us wade through complex issues, make better decisions, and find a path forward.


Today. Right now. As 2013 approaches, let's continue to use stories well, to help grow and excel, instead of to diminish others.


There are wise and uplifting words in this piece and steps to take. Let's go this route. Happy New Year everyone.

When augmented reality hits the Internet of Things (Wired UK)

When augmented reality hits the Internet of Things  (Wired UK) | Transformational Media, Transmedia, Arts Activism, Culture Shift | Scoop.it
Wired.co.uk examines how augmented reality and The Internet of Things -- both hotly tipped computing trends -- could impact each other in the coming years

Where they intersect could be an engrossing area -- with the visual and location-based aspect of augmented reality providing a real-time, real-place interface for the data being pumped out by objects. We’d be able to see not just whether a bus is behind a building but how many people are on it, whether it’s on time, where people are sitting on the bus, what the name of driver is and well, any other information you decided to put out there.

Currently AR is interesting, yes, but slightly random and patchy. With AR plus the Internet of Things, he could check out different temperatures in different parts of a building, track any given object or person and see or hear what was going on behind walls -- provided the right chips and sensors were in place.

It will allow us to engage much more deeply with what’s around us. Scanning down a street we could see which restaurants are full, which have seats, which shops have that game/coat we want in stock or where our friends are. Other applications for this engaging technology are likely to be games, or maybe training exercises because it’s engrossing and fast-moving.

Why Content Marketing is the New Branding | Copyblogger

Why Content Marketing is the New Branding | Copyblogger | Transformational Media, Transmedia, Arts Activism, Culture Shift | Scoop.it
What we call "brands" are just promises of an experience ... and content will help you shape that promise.

 

Zan:

I've been having more and more discussion lately about the idea of filmmakers AND films being brands, each in their own way. If brands are promises of an experience and content helps to shape that promise, then it's not a stretch to see how individual films are expressions of a filmmaker's brand. Or a way to experience the creativity, vision and artistry of a filmmaker.

Remixing Remix: Mozilla Festival 2012

Remixing Remix: Mozilla Festival 2012 | Transformational Media, Transmedia, Arts Activism, Culture Shift | Scoop.it
The Center for Social Media showcases and analyzes media for public knowledge and action—media made by, for, and with publics to address the problems that they share.

 

excerpts:

Documentary filmmakers have increasing access to new tools for remixing and web documentary thanks to open source webmakers. At the 2012 Mozilla Festival, Brett Gaylor, director of the 2008 documentary "RiP: A Remix Manifesto," took center stage to announce the official launch of Popcorn Maker 1.0.

 

Web-native documentary (...) what does this have to do with my filmmaking? This isn't the first time we've thrown around "web-native documentary" and "Popcorn" here at the Center, but the good news is now you get to tinker with it firsthand.

Frog Creates An Open-Source Guide To Design Thinking

Frog Creates An Open-Source Guide To Design Thinking | Transformational Media, Transmedia, Arts Activism, Culture Shift | Scoop.it

Brainstorming, whether you believe in it or shun it, is a fantastic neologism. But as Frog Principal Designer David Sherwin has found, it’s also a very American word--one that doesn’t exist in every language.


Today, Frog will release the Collective Action Toolkit, a free, 72-page booklet that seeks to develop a universal framework for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds to tackle big problems in their communities. Developed over the past year, the CAT contains nary a mention of design (or brainstorming). Instead, it relies on a simple vocabulary to describe skills like building a team, carrying out research, and developing solutions. Want to figure out a way to help people in your community eat healthier? Have an idea for a small business? The CAT offers templates for activities to help get the idea off the ground.

Transmedia will revolutionize storytelling as much as the printing press, says expert | Digital Trends

Transmedia will revolutionize storytelling as much as the printing press, says expert | Digital Trends | Transformational Media, Transmedia, Arts Activism, Culture Shift | Scoop.it

The future of movie storytelling has more to do with the technology outside of the movies than within, according to one transmedia expert, who says that we should expect stories to be revolutionized by modern technology in the same way that the printing press changed everything.


If you’re a moviemaker whose primary focus is creating the best movie you can imagine, the current movie industry has some bad news for you: That’s not enough anymore. Speaking at this year’s Cross-Media Forum in the United Kingdom, Sean Stewart – whose Fourth Wall Studios has worked on creating interactive marketing for movies such as The Dark Knight Rises and AI: Artificial Intelligence – said that what is needed now are more filmmakers who want to create the best worlds they can imagine..

 

...Reflecting the nerd demographic seemingly at the center of blockbuster movies these days, Stewart’s talk was called “Storytelling V: The Audience Strikes Back,” and described the shifting relationship between audiences and fictions in a world where everyone has smartphones, tablets and access to the Internet. He cited a recent Google survey that revealed that 77 percent of audiences are dual-screeners – That is, using another electronic device while also watching television – and suggested that, in order to maintain a close connection with their audiences, storytellers will have to learn to spread their talents across various media....

Storytelling and Content Strategy

Storytelling and Content Strategy | Transformational Media, Transmedia, Arts Activism, Culture Shift | Scoop.it
How to use two basic plots to define your business’ content strategy, while keeping the customer as the hero of the story.

 

I love this article! It puts anyone's content strategy into a fabulous storytelling context, and gives all of us a way to think about our websites from a narrative perspective.

 

The ideas here are very helpful and fun to play with. The author, Kat French, did a good job.

 

Using The Quest story format, you can easily share your customers stories.

 

Using The Boy Meets Girl format, you can evaluate your website and tell/share your biz stories much better.

 

The other blog post links at the end of the article look worthy of exploration also.

 

So go enjoy this delightful -- and helpful -- piece!

From Karen: Now here's another cool tech tool to help augment our business storytelling! Thanks to Siobhan-O-Flynn for finding and sharing this! Below is part of the artice but there's so much more the article talks about regarding Meograph:

 

Meograph, new storytelling startup that launched in July, gives online journalists and storytellers an added dimension that too often has been missing: context.

 

With Meograph, you can create what co-founder and CEO Misha Leybovich calls "4D storytelling" through a simple interface that lets users add images, video and text to a story they want to tell. It's free.

 

"The big vision is that we want to democratize the creation of interactive video storytelling," Leybovich said over coffee at ING Cafe in San Francisco earlier this month.

 

Today if you have a story to tell, you can publish a video to YouTube and write a blog post about it, but it starts to get funky if you want to add a lot of photos or tell how the story evolves over time. Meograph lets you create and share interactive stories that combine video with maps, a timeline and links, filling in that often missing context of where and when...

Cultivating a "green identity" through narrative

Cultivating a "green identity" through narrative | Transformational Media, Transmedia, Arts Activism, Culture Shift | Scoop.it

Dan McAdams, a narrative psychologist at Northwestern University, studies the personal life stories of people. His research shows that our personal identities do not come from personality traits or the issues that concern us at any particular time in our lives. Our identities come from the stories we tell (often unconsciously) that bring the episodes of life together into a coherent unity. These stories incorporate our concerns and express our interpretations of inherited dispositions (e.g. outgoing and sociable), but do not become an identity until they are brought together into a narrative.

 

This is where we can begin to think about the cultivation of ‘green’ identity. It has to do with the stories we tell ourselves about how we relate to our communities, purchases, nature, and so on.

 

A major obstacle to the environmental movement has been the use of stories to discredit environmental concerns. A heavily funded series of campaigns have been waged to paint environmentalists with negative stereotypes.

Why We Have An Open Wireless Movement | Electronic Frontier Foundation

The Open Wireless Movement envisions a world where people readily have access to open wireless Internet connections—a world where sharing one's network in a way that ensures security yet preserves quality is the norm. Much of this vision is attainable now. In fact, many people have routers that already feature "guest networking" capabilities. To make this even easier, we are working with a coalition of volunteer engineers to build technologies that would make it simple for Internet subscribers to portion off their wireless networks for guests and the public while maintaining security, protecting privacy, and preserving quality of access. And we're working with advocates to help change the way people and businesses think about Internet service.

interview with transmedia producer, Sara Thacher | Transformational Media, Transmedia, Arts Activism, Culture Shift | Scoop.it

Our interview with transmedia producer Sara Thacher. Sara makes adventures that often meander between the physical and the digital.

 

'Everything is contingent. Often you’ll be working with experts in each particular area. The experts will be heads down in their own specialty. They’ll be making the best website or animation or social media plan, but they need you, the producer, to make sure that their decisions make sense for the larger project.'

 

An experience designer is also all about the connections. Instead of looking at these connections from a production point of view, the experience designer puts themselves in seat of the audience. You’re considering how the audience moves between different media. What threads need to be built so that the audience that’s following your YouTube channel will also play your SMS text adventure? It’s also the experience designer’s job to think about why the platforms/media/storytelling mediums are being used to convey different parts of the story....
