Love this! Great Analogy: Storytelling In A DJ Mix

Love this! Great Analogy: Storytelling In A DJ Mix | immersive media | Scoop.it

SETTING / CONTEXT

Every plot is surrounded by context.

From the DJ’s perspective, one of the most important things to be conscious of is the environment in which you’re playing. Before going on stage, take a minute to soak in the details. Look around you, take note of the clothes people are wearing, the drinks people are drinking, the smoke in the air, and the venue where you will be preforming. Take a look at the clock, strike up some conversations. These specific characteristics will help you in pinpointing the overall vibe of the show.

 

If you’re about to tell an entire audience of people a fantastic, meaningful story, you better be prepared to figure out how exactly you’re going to explain it to them. You might have a list of tracks ready to go, and while you appreciate those tracks you dug up, it doesn’t necessarily mean others will.

PRO-TIP: To avoid this, instead of thinking “Why don’t these people like my tracks?”, think of it more like“How might I introduce these tracks to people? How do I make them ‘get it’?”

Mathematical genius is fragile. We need to stop destroying it. | Juniad Mubeen | Medium.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

Mathematical genius is misunderstood. The term “genius” evokes feelings of envy. It paints a picture of a pre-determined minority of people who have truly mastered a discipline. A chosen few.

Yet there is nothing pre-determined about it. Mathematical genius resides within every one of us. Most people just don’t know it yet. That’s because genius is fragile. If you don’t embrace genius and tend to it with care, it will slip away, leaving behind just a subdued vision of the mathematicians we could have become.

If you take even a cursory look through the annals of mathematics, you’ll see the fragile and often fickle nature of genius. Many of the legends of the field — whose talents and achievements are beyond dispute — could so easily have been forgotten by history. Their stories should act as a warning sign to educators today.

Want to resist the post-truth age? Learn to analyze photos like an expert would | immersive media | Scoop.it

"“When photography was invented,” photo historian Vicki Goldberg once said, “it was thought to be an equivalent to truth. It was truth with a capital T.” But as viewers quickly learned, seeing isn’t always believing. Even in the early history of photography, hoaxes like the Cottingley fairies taught people to question the validity of the images they saw. Today, we’re well aware that photos can be digitally altered—which means that the public trusts the authority of photos, including journalistic images, a whole lot less."
