Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 9, 11:46 AM

What a cool article this is! This is a story about teacher Lev Fruchter who uses storytelling and fiction to teach folks how to write software. 


By working with stories his students understand what how to think about math that will run a software program.


In the article Fruchter talks specifically about how one story he uses teaches binary code, "two-bit" problems, and "three-bit" problems. He uses other stories to demonstrate how CSS and HTML work, and showcases another story "as an embodiment of the proper way to write object-oriented programs."


His students learn about coding from a variety of stories, and then are graded based on the software programs they create.


Fruchter has developed this into an entire curriculum called StoryCode. There's a hyperlink to this in the article. 


The ending rocks: “When you can call a line of code a spell, then you are getting somewhere,” Fruchter said. After all, isn’t computer code basically modern magic?"


Go read the article. It's fun, illuminating, and inspiring. I know my software geek husband is going to love it.

Computer generated stories? Turns out it's like really, really hard

Computer generated stories? Turns out it's  like really, really hard | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it
Researchers at Australia's University of New South Wales recently designed the Moral Storytelling System, a computer program that forgoes all the messy human parts of writing a story to bring you undiluted, AI-generated narratives.
However, the Moral Storytelling System, or MOSS, focuses exclusively on fables, because less straightforward storytelling remains still too complex for artificial intelligence. Developer of the ...

Whew! It looks like us business storytellers won't be totally replaced by a computer anytime soon. Dodged that bullet for now.


This is a quick post perfect for a Friday. It talks about the attempts to create a Moral Storytelling System (MOSS) -- and its failures to actually come up with a decent story. 


The program focuses on fables first and a sample is included -- that's quite sorry (yeah!).  Turns out storytelling is quite a complex skill to master. And very difficult for a computer to emulate.


But the vision for storytelling's future shared here gives us pause -- computers will make meaningful contributions to literature within the decade...and the computer will definitely be doing some of the work of writing.


Hmmm -- what do you think?

Here is an article about some innovative ways companies are using Snapchat for delivering stories now that the platform has added video and text message chatting.


No question -- doing this kind of storytelling takes planning and time. Maybe you can do it on the fly but I'd want to think through a strategy first. The examples in this article will get you started.


Bottom line -- there are so many ways for companies to share their stories! Figure out what technologies/channels work for you. Maybe Snapchat is a powerful medium for you.

Saving Storytelling in the age of the Smartphone

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 5, 2014 1:27 PM

This article makes me both sad and more committed to storytelling than ever before. The author, Meg Garber, is talking with and about Sherry Turkle, the writer of the book Alone Together: Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other, and working on her next book Reclaiming Conversation.


The article is about how we are so focused on the screens in front of us that we are sacrificing actually talking with each other. Where does storytelling go, along with its benefits of building empathy, relationship, context, meaning, wisdom, imagination, inspiration, passion, purpose, creativity, etc.)? Down the tubes, I'm afraid.


This phenomenon is prevalent in the US today. This is a consequence of technology that I don't think is such a great outcome. The article is a fascinating discussion of what is happening today and well worth the read.


So my resolve to engage in more storytelling through face-to-face conversations just ramped up today. Because this also provides significant business benefits.


How about you?

The other night my husband Tim and I were out to dinner. At the table next to us was a teenage boy with his mom and dad. The kid was totally engaged in his meal and having a good time gobbling up the food. No phone or iPad for him!


His parents though? They spent the entire meal on their phones checking email and texting. They never once said a word to their son. You could tell the boy was used to it and was entertaining himself in their absence. Tim and I just shook our heads.


If ever there was a strong case for putting down the phone and connecting with others -- and swapping stories back and forth -- it's this video. I loved it and it really got me thinking. I think you will enjoy it too. It's a great reminder to stop, talk, and share stories.


It's OK if I'm not tethered to my cell. When work is done I can ignore it and my iPad to share the story of my day with my husband -- and listen to his in return :)

Here's What Wi-Fi Would Look Like If We Could See It

Here's What Wi-Fi Would Look Like If We Could See It | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

Wi-fi. It's all around us, quietly and invisibly powering our access to the world's information. But few of us have a sense of what wi-fi actually is, let alone what it would look like if we could see it. Artist Nickolay Lamm decided to shed some light on the subject. He created visualizations that imagine the size, shape, and color of wi-fi signals were they visible to the human eye. 

"I feel that by showing what wi-fi would look like if we could see it, we'd appreciate the technology that we use everyday," Lamm told me in an email. "A lot of us use technology without appreciating the complexity behind making it work."  

To estimate what this would look like, Lamm worked with M. Browning Vogel, Ph.D., an astrobiologist and former employee at NASA Ames. Dr. Vogel described the science behind wireless technology, and Lamm used the information to create the visualizations.
