What's Happened to Transmedia?

It's been haunting me ever since. "

"The genie is out of the bottle and can never be returned" Good stuff from Andrea.
Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, Today, 12:32 PM

Transmedia has always had a rocky definition. It may, however, be moving more from a definable thing to a perspective on how to approach communication--whether entertainment, marketing or education.  To me, it has always represented a more accurate user-centered design that reflects how the human brain receives and gathers information and makes meaning of experience--through multiple channels.  It's not surprising that the pioneers of transmedia experiences have moved to the edge of the storytelling envelope, such as VR.  It is where the attention and money are focused given that the opportunities are unknown and thus, full of promise.  As Andrea's article points out, transmedia strategies were not uniformly able to create a viable business model that supported many creative endeavors.  At the same time, the fundamental shifts in the media landscape that impact consumer expectations and demands, not to mention the flood of choice, suggest that awareness of the need for multi-platform engagement only grows.  To me, this suggests that the fundamentals are more important, even if they "only" provide a foundation for thinking about strategies and projects in the way Simon describes.

A Europa da liberdade morreu. O Ocidente vai perder a guerra com o islão. Já não há homens brilhantes, e os escritores não têm nada para contar. O olhar pessimista de Arturo Pérez-Reverte, o antigo repórter de guerra que escolheu a literatura para se salvar, mas não a usa para salvar o mundo.

Why There's No Innovation in the Publishing Industry 

Why There's No Innovation in the Publishing Industry  | Litteris | Scoop.it
Joe Wikert has just inadvertently proven that the book publishing industry drowned most of its innovators at birth. Earlier today Wikert published a post titled Whatever happened to innovation in the publishing industry?, and proceeded to unintentionally answer his question by example. At the beginning of his post, he cites the Kindle as the last major innovation in digital publishing: Remember the excitement surrounding the launch of Amazon’s Kindle eight years ago? It was a clunky device, even by 2007 standards, but it was revolutionary. One of the original Kindle’s breakthrough features was the ability to download books via cellular network. The eInk display and extremely long battery life also led to its popularity despite the device’s hefty $399 price tag. That was eight years ago and it’s hard to name even two or three other innovations that have had as significant an impact as the first-gen Kindle. Sure, the iPad was noteworthy but it didn’t exactly reinvent reading. And while today’s devices are faster and cheaper than yesterday’s they feature incremental improvements, not groundbreaking innovations. The same can be said for all aspects of the digital publishing ecosystem, not just devices. The most interesting development over the past few years is probably the [...]

I selected this article from Curatti written by Alice Elliott because it shows how to write articles from the readers' point of view.

 

Create content that your audience wants to read.

 

Improve Your Subscriber Rate With the Target Market in Mind

 

A blog post that is focused more on the writer will not get much attention. I agree that knowing who your readers are and crafting a message just for them can go a long way.

 

Elliot shows how your business can change your content strategy that appeals to the needs and desires of your community.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Successful blog posts provide a solution to what the readers want. This takes sufficient research and a unique style of writing that is in your own voice.

 

  • Ask whether your niche is both popular and clear to your community. Offer something special that goes beyond what other blogs are publishing.

 

  • Improve the readability of your blog with a good design and layout that is not confusing. Make it easy to read and appealing to your readers.

Alfred Hitchcock had the scream theme down pat. These tips, however, could apply to any writing genre to give it a new heartbeat. Great ideas!
