Press Play: David Carr’s Boston U. Class Uses Medium as Its Medium | Mediashift | PBS | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it
The following is a note New York Times media columnist David Carr posted on Medium for his incoming students at Boston University, where Carr is the College of Communication’s first Andrew R. Lack professor. It is cross-posted here with permission, and edited for length. This course, Press Play, aspires to be a place where you make things. Good things.

Here’s one last chance to learn from David what it means to be a communicator in this digital day and age. This article includes the syllabus for a class David taught at Boston University. You’re welcome.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 8, 1:34 PM

Innovative storytelling is on the rise! Here's the second post today on creative developments in business storytelling.


This drinking game to generate stories made me smile and wish I was in the room with this group!


The post by Ilan Mochari @IlanMochari gives the directions for how to use this game to generate stories and visual storyboards in a fast and fun way. And it teaches everyone a lot about communication, too.


Why would you want to use this game? In this instance it was used to generate new ideas for marketing and branding campaigns. As the author says, it's easy to rinse and repeat previous campaigns, and harder to come up with new ones.


I think it's ingenious and definitely want to try it out. If you experiment with it, let us know what happens. And what other ways could you use this game in business?


Have fun and story on :)

A little personalization goes a long way | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it
I’ve been wearing glasses ever since I was eleven months old. Almost 40 years later, I still believe that “four eyes are better than two.” Despite the occasional flirtation with contact lenses, I feel at home with a pair of glasses on my face and have certainly explored all different shapes and sizes over the years.
After years of spending a lot of money on the perfect pair of specs, you can imagine my delight when someone told me about Warby Parker. Finally there was a place where I could get f

Not sure I agree that digital story design has to be segregated from 'traditional' forms in quite this way. It's all storytelling, after all!


But well worth the read.
