Robin Good: Web of Stories is a free web site service which collects and organizes great people recounting key memories in video. Web of Stories also provides an opportunity for anyone to record, upload and share their own story in a video clip.
Telling stories, to help others understand an idea or comprehend what your product / service is all about, is increasingly being recognized as one of the best approaches to convey information in a mode that can be easily followed and absorbed.
P.S.: Web of Stories has lots of interesting clips, but nonetheless the opportunity for viewers to vote and rate such videos, navigation and access to the collection best parts remains yet an area in which major imporvements can be done.
Telling stories, connectedlyScreen AfricaThere are a couple of points that are worth remembering as you try to transition to a more connected form of digital storytelling. Firstly, the audience is in control.
Now here is a thoughtful article that shares with us a glimpse of the future -- specifically the technologies on the horizon that will continue to change the tools we use to share our biz stories.
The main point of this post is the increasing importance of connecting and sharing your stories across different technology media -- computer, iPads, mobile. And in various forms -- digital stories, social media snippets, online maps, and the like. To be the most effective, your biz stories need to connect and link together -- be part of a focused whole.
This does not mean you have a single narrative that is shared across platforms and through different technologies. This means you have a series of biz stories that you share. Some of these stories are best shared digitally, some in social media, others face-to-face (yes, that is still a technology available to us!!), others on our website, etc. The entire collection of your biz stories create your brand, your voice, your reputation.
This is a good "let's step back and see the big picture" article.
I very much like the author's points at the end: all of these choices can be overwhelming, and get help from others to work with the new tools. Now if I just had a few more hours each day to use more of these digital tools .... :))
Germany has become more than just a leader in standard renewable energy uptake; it is making a play for commercial leadership and technological primacy in the increasingly competitive global renewable energy business.
Companies understand their customers want to see more renewable energy in action, and German regulators understand that they need to find ways to put more renewable energy, including wind power, onto the grid to replace planned coal and nuclear power plant retirements.
