OK -- this article never mentions the word storytelling, yet every single tenent listed -- and their definitions -- applies to storytelling. The post focuses on creativity, and storytelling is a creative act.


Here's how they translate into storytelling:

  1. You are a storyteller
  2. Storytelling is work -- it takes effort
  3. You must go through the motions
  4. Your brain is not a computer
  5. There is no right answer
  6. There is no such thing as failure
  7. You don't see things as They are -- you see them as You are


Go read the article by Michael Michalko to get the definitions for each principle. Then stoke those creativity and storytelling fires the rest of the week.

Why These Unique & Creative Text-Focused Websites Will Inspire You

Why These Unique & Creative Text-Focused Websites Will Inspire You | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

Typography is an important but often under-represented part of a website's layout. With so much focus being placed on the presentational aspects of CSS and the use of large images and media that choke bandwidth restraints; it’s nice to occasionally remember that textual content can also make an impact on users and their experience. Content remains king, and a few good fonts can make even the simplest of sites look smart - though not so many that you have to wait for ages for the text to be visible.

Because of this, I’m going to show you a few handpicked examples of sites that make their content look terrific, and why you should consider following their example in your own work. We’re going to take a journey of how elegant typography can make a site shine; looking at the bold, creative, navigational, simplistic and interactive content that makes the designer's voice speak volumes - so let’s get started!...

10 User Generated Content Campaigns That Actually Worked

10 User Generated Content Campaigns That Actually Worked | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

Tired of struggling to crank out the endless streams of content needed to appease today’s consumers? You’re in luck! There is an option for burned out business owners, and that’s user generated content. This technique, in conjunction with the growth of popular social media websites, allows modern businesses to delegate some of these brand-building responsibilities to an unlikely voice -- their customer.

 

Having users contribute to your content creation efforts has another interesting advantage, as consumers are more interested in hearing the views of their peers than reading cleverly written sales messages.

 

According to Bazaar Voice, 64% of millennials and 53% of baby boomers want more options to share their opinions about brands, while other studies show consumers trust user generated content more than all other forms of media.

 

In light of these trends, there’s never been a better time to start using user generated content to engage your readers and build trust with them. Here are ten brands that have leveraged user generated content in the past to help inspire your own campaigns....

I am always on the hunt for articles that are great examples of stories in action. In this case, LinkedIn connection Karthik Rajan of GDF SUEZ wrote this piece and it really shows how stories can be used effectively to convey complex ideas simply.


Another reason I like this post is that the stories Rajan shares also have more than one idea imbedded in them, and hence contain multiple meanings. Which idea and meaning you will emphasize depends on the situation and your intention as the teller.


In addition to the points Rajan makes, what other ideas and meanings do you find embedded in the stories he shares?

I've been traveling and working (the kind where you fall exhausted into bed early) but am finally back home and curating. While on the road I've been gathering a nice collection of articles to share with you this week.


This first one comes from Karthik Rajan, Regional VP, Sales at GDF SUEZ in Texas. It's a wonderful article about how bedtime stories with his daughter turned into keen insights into creativity and leadership -- like assumed constraints -- which are business lessons for us all. I really like how Rajan weaves together storytelling in personal and professional life -- because that is how life actually happens! 


This is a well-written post and one I know you will enjoy. It's perfect for the beginning of the week.

When in Rome, Laugh as the Romans Laughed | The New Yorker

When in Rome, Laugh as the Romans Laughed | The New Yorker | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

The Cambridge classicist Mary Beard weighs in on the ancient art of joking....


Dear Laughter Lovers,

Have you ever wondered why I always start my newsletter with that salutation? Well, wonder no more. It’s because “laughter lover” is the English translation of philogelos, the Greek word that serves as the title of the world’s oldest joke book.


In last week’s magazine, there was a fascinating Profile by Rebecca Mead of the noted Cambridge classicist Mary Beard. What especially interested me was the mention of Beard’s most recent book, “Laughter in Ancient Rome: On Joking, Tickling, and Cracking Up,” which is published by University of California Press. (She is incredibly prolific, so by the time you read this she may have an even more recent book.)


Coincidentally, I had just finished reading this title, which I found to be as enjoyable as it was erudite. It includes a chapter on the Philogelos. I contacted Professor Beard to see whether she would write a bit about it. Being the agreeable sort that she is, she said yes. Take it away, Mary.


A few years ago, the English standup comic Jim Bowen presented a show with jokes that were based entirely on the one surviving ancient joke book, the Philogelos. It’s a collection of some two hundred and sixty short gags, written in Greek; it probably dates, in the form we have it, to the fifth century A.D., but some of the jokes go back centuries earlier.


I particularly like the one about the thuggish, philistine Roman who destroyed Corinth in 146 B.C. When he was overseeing the transport of the precious antiques that he had looted from the city, he said to the ships’ captains: “Don’t break anything, or you’ll have to replace it.”


Bowen’s show was apparently successful, or, at least, it was widely reported as such in the U.K. press, which at first sight was a bit worrying for those of us who think of laughter as much more a cultural than a natural human response. By and large, the rules of laughter (at what, when, when not, et cetera) are something we learn—we’re not born with them. So how come people still laugh at the jokes in the Philogelos  almost two thousand years later, in a completely different culture, one whose rules of laughter we ought not necessarily to intuit? I have various explanations for that, none of which involve abandoning my basic position on the cultural aspect of laughter and joking....

Punchlines. that are more than 2000 years old? Yes, they're still crazy after all these years according to Bob Mankoff, columnist at the New Yorker, and classicist and Cambridge professor Mary Beard. They share a hilarious look at humor from the Greeks and Romans and why it's so enduring. Need a little humor and creativity with your coffee? Highly recommended. 10/10

How The World Would Look If We Could See All The Radiation From Our Cell Phones

How The World Would Look If We Could See All The Radiation From Our Cell Phones | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

If you’re reading this, you’re likely bathed in several channels of cell phone radiation at once. But while we can spot cell phone towers and antennae, the waves themselves remain invisible. Following up on a project to visualize what Wi-Fi might look like in cities, artist-researcher Nickolay Lamm has imagined what cell phone radiation would look like if emitted as waves of light.


Lamm worked with eight academics and engineers to verify that the images we’re looking at are accurate representations of cell phone radiation. Like radio, cell phones rely on radio frequency waves, which emit low-energy radiation. Unlike ionizing radiation--released by higher-energy gamma rays, x-rays, and ultraviolet rays--exposure to cell phones’ non-ionizing radiation has not been proven to cause serious damage to living tissue

We are bathing in a deadly cocktail of radiation! No wonder it is like being at the receiving end in a microwave oven. Radiation can alter our DNA, and cause mutations to happen! Mutation may be defined as accelerated evolution in layman's terms! Increasing cases of cancer, pshyco-neural complications, birth defects, you name it, all these can be aggravated by this deadly exposure to radiation! No wonder we are so obsessed with technology that we are ready to ignore all those emissions all for the sake of comfort! This is an article that is simply laying bare the facts!

It takes awhile to do both, and not many folk in our field talk about the inner process of becoming a fabulous storyteller. This article explains the 4 stages that occur.


I love that for each stage, the author, Todd Henry, provides several provocative questions for us to help us get through it. Brilliant!
