The Future is Now: 5 Things pushing the art and form of storytelling

The Future is Now: 5 Things pushing the art and form of storytelling | Malaysian Youth Scene |

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
David Collet's insight:

This is a bit different. But, culturally it is necessary to pursue as many avenues for artistic development that includes the need to live.


The Internet provides a low cost entry for all forms of artistic endeavours at an affordable entry. The problem is getting noticed.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, May 28, 2014 2:14 AM

Ruthie Doyle:  "As I wrap up my tenure with Sundance Institute’s New Frontier Story Lab, I’ve been reflecting on some ways innovation is advancing the art of storytelling into the future (the future is now, after all)."

Sadim M.R.'s curator insight, May 28, 2014 7:09 AM

"new technologies are exciting tools building on the rich foundation of storytelling and experimentation."

giorgiojannis's curator insight, May 29, 2014 5:07 AM

Ho bisogno di un eroe. Di un lupo, di un drago, di una babayaga, di una sanzione, di una manipolazione patemica, di un valore. E allora parleremo bene di narrazione, che non sia soltanto uno spammare un po' articolato e multimediale.

A Scientist Predicts the Future

A Scientist Predicts the Future | Malaysian Youth Scene |

When making predictions, I have two criteria: the laws of physics must be obeyed and prototypes must exist that demonstrate “proof of principle.” I’ve interviewed more than 300 of the world’s top scientists, and many allowed me into laboratories where they are inventing the future. Their accomplishments and dreams are eye-opening. From my conversations with them, here’s a glimpse of what to expect in the coming decades:

David Collet's insight:

A fascinating, and not imaginary, prediction of what is likely to be. Scary to some. Challenging to others. Offering hope to most.


Change is a scary thing but, in life, nothing is more certain than change. Embrace it. And enjoy the ride.

I think the future is unpredictable, and no one  can predict the future!

Carlos Polaino Jiménez's curator insight, January 16, 2014 7:38 AM

Predicción científica del futuro, esto es un tema a leer por lo menos.

The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide

The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide | Malaysian Youth Scene |
There is a evil side of Google which revealed itself in the Filter Bubble, invasion of privacy, the lack of transparency, in the monopoly induction of behavior and especially in what is happening in the search environment.

Via Robin Good
David Collet's insight:

This is a great article. I don't believe Google is 'evil' anymore than I believed Microsoft was / is 'evil'. They are simply businesses trying to generate the most success which is measure by revenue. And they will do what is necessary to make that happen.


Our responsibility is to ensure there is always an alternative.


Try a different search engine today.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, January 13, 2014 5:58 AM

People who use Google are given the impression that they are interacting with the data out there, but they are actually interacting with Google and its view of the world.


"They are prediction engines that constantly refine a theory about who you are and what you are going to do or want next. Together, they create an universe of data for each one of us."

"In a 2010 paper published in the Scientific American journal, Tim Berners-Lee warned about companies developing ever more “closed” products and “data islands”.

"Morville, in his book Search Patterns, says that the first and second results receive 80% of attention. The vertical approach suggests to the user the idea of a single result that fully answers the question, enclosing possibilities and preventing alternative realization."

Or in other words, is our acceptance of what we see in search results eroding our ability (or willingness) to consider alternatives and employ critical thinking?

Lucy Beaton's curator insight, January 16, 2014 8:21 PM

This is alarming.  We, as Teacher Librarians, need to be aware of the ramifications of this.

Mrs. Dilling's curator insight, February 13, 2014 11:52 AM

My favorite statement, "we must always be aware and well informed about the intentions of companies, and never stop having multiple options for any service."


This article was an eye opener for me. I had never questioned Google before.
