Kati Sipp's insight:

I think a lot of this comes down to whether or not parents are involved in helping their teens set up social media sites. If you have a conversation with them, while they're setting up their Facebook profile, about why privacy is important, they will get it. It might not always be the same thing that motivates your kid to be private--for some, it's the specter of college admissions, for others, the idea that they will inevitably "friend" their grandmother--so knowing what motivates your kid is important.

My passion is to help businesses and organizations tell their stories. I am an author of fiction for both children and adults. I spend my days immersed in storytelling.

 

So why does my “About Me” page stink on ice?

 

It’s not an official about.me page. My “About Me” page is found via the “Hello!” tab on my navigation bar. Although I’m currently working on a much more effective “About Me” presentation, I’m going to leave this one up for awhile so that you can make a meticulous study of its multitudinous awfulness.

How interactive technology is transforming storytelling

How interactive technology is transforming storytelling | Labor & Social Media | Scoop.it

Chad Clark's curator insight, July 23, 2013 11:41 AM

A “good tale well told” transcends the medium by which it is relayed.  Credit is due Naomi Alderman for saying as much, or rather writing as much in this brief but value-packed article.  (At one point she confesses to being an instructor of creative writing as well as digital media; her article resonates with familiarity of those two areas of expertise.)  For additional reading re: Immersion, I recommend Frank Rose’s The Art of Immersion.   As to “representing choice” – am I the only avid reader who as a kid tried to get into the Choose Your Own Adventure books but ultimately preferred my bound page to be more of “Calvinoesque”?  (And for the record, I still hate seeing the following words in a periodical: to continue reading, turn to page…) 

 

But with digital media the other shoe has fallen. 

 

In conclusion Alderman speaks to audience participation. I can’t help but think of The Rocky Horror Picture Show whenever I see those two words – audience and participation – together, but alas, I wish I could think Star Wars, Episode One.  You see just last night I watched a 12 minute video simply titled “What If Star Wars: Episode I" Was Good?” This video is one man’s take on how to make EpiOne better, er, um, good even.  Now I’m a huge Star Wars fan, having seen Episode IV: A New Hope when I was only 5.  I’m also a digital media guy myself – so says the University of Washington and after George Lucas destroyed my childhood with Episodes I, II, and III, one other digital media guy takes 12 minutes and tells a story that, well, that if made into a movie wouldn’t have bit the big dead Chihuahua. (Come on, EpiOne was really bad.) 

 

But with the world of Star Wars fans (nerds?) out there, don’t you think George, er, Mr. Lucas, could have made a better film if he’d have listened?  I think so – and so even with all the beautiful digital effects, it all comes down to a good tale well told and in this case, that needed audience participation.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 7, 2013 2:13 PM

This article is a little heady but fascinating. I love eavesdropping in on other fields to see the effects storytelling is having, and to understand how we are grappling with similar issues. And to understand what their contributions might be!


This is a perfect example. Data visualization or data storytelling or data narratives is a hot topic today. The internet is littered with smart, funny, interesting, or very dense infographics that we pass around like hot cakes.


For many years data-visualization has focused on how to take data and visually display it so it is easily understandable. Lately they want the data to tell a story, but haven't yet explored adding story structure and story elements into their end products very much. And they interchange the words narrative and storytelling a lot thinking they mean the same thing (not all narratives are stories: think Wikipedia entry).


Nevertheless, their efforts are admirable and I enjoy keeping tabs on this field. And what I like about this article is that it is beginning to ask two critical questions -- what effects do our data visualizations have on our audiences; and how do we measure that?


So the author, Nick Diakopoulos, identifies elements that story conveys that we are very familiar with: learning, memorability, insights, engagement, sharing, conversation, credibility, persuasiveness, emotional responses, etc. The author forgot 'taking action' :)


Fascinating! I love this because as people in the field of data visualization entertain these questions, how they organize and display their material is going to change and become more 'storied'.


Why else is this article important? Well, because I bet folks creating infographics can learn a lot from us biz storytellers. And likewise, I think that these brilliant data folks will come up with nifty techology solutions about audience reactions that business storytellers will be able to benefit from. And that's just my first guess.


Dealing with data runs along a spectrum -- from business people and storytellers wanting to know how to weave data into their stories to data geeks wanting to know how to display their numbers in ways that tell a story.


Through conversations and sharing between our fields, we can learn a lot from each other and be better for it. Here's to collaboration and cross-pollination!

Elias Morling estime que les curateurs sont comme les "dumpster divers", ces militants qui fouillent les poubelles.  Et ils les appelle les "vrais influenceurs" car :

 

1. Les curateurs représentent un nouveau type de leadership tribal bottom up et peer-to-peer.

 

2. En tant que membres d'une tribu, les curateurs seront toujours plus "natives" que n'importe qui parlant de l'extérieur.

 

3. Au sein de la tribu, ils sont appréciés non seulement pour leurs compétences, mais aussi parce qu'ils entretiennent et développent leur propre culture.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, June 22, 2013 2:05 PM

Excellent article and video. Looking at the wonderful world of the internet and curation. The idea of curation of online content has become more and more inportant with the exponential growth of content on the world wide web. Being able to organise and manage all of the content is important.

 

Curation is about making good choices about what you share and putting it into a context for themselves and others. Being enthusiastic and thoughtful about what you choose is a way of showing what you are finding and sharing is signficant and worthwhile. 

 

Finding the most interesting and valuable things and sharing that is the key. What you want and what you are interested in is important but you also need to consider your audience.
