National Park Service launches unofficial Twitter account that Donald Trump can’t touch

National Park Service launches unofficial Twitter account that Donald Trump can’t touch | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
The unofficial National Park Service account started six hours ago by reposting the Badlands tweets that had been deleted. It’s since continued posting all the climate change data it can find, and it’s been documenting Trump’s strange attempts at cracking down on the official accounts. This unofficial Twitter account has quickly gained ninety thousand followers (likely a lot more by the time you’re reading this), as Americans are flocking to the account to keep up with the real National Park Service news....

US National Park Service employees go rogue and Trump can't stop them. Just three days later it has 906,000 followers!  Resist lies and follow them for truthful tweets and no "alternate facts."

Storytelling and UX: Separated at Birth

Storytelling and UX: Separated at Birth | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
Learning storytelling in a group from an experienced storyteller provides an experiential sense of story that can’t be captured with a set of procedural instructions.  There are great courses out there.  We can learn a lot online…but if we want to understand something as deeply human as storytelling its ideal for humans to interact with other humans.

Here’s why: A story blends emotional, visual, kinesthetic and rational reasoning routines without separating them.  Personal stories illuminate insights that are specific to a situation’s people, complexity, texture and relationships. A vibrant true story delivers a hologram of culture, nature, nurture, space and time from an embodied human point of view: WAY more information than a story formated via a hunt and peck search for hero, quest, obstacle, helper and journey.

Saatchi gallery to explore the idea of selfies as art

Saatchi gallery to explore the idea of selfies as art | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
Art has now become a medium of infinite possibilities it seems, far past the paintbrush and canvas - now livestreams, live performance, and even selfies have the ability to name themselves as art. That's partially due to the fact 'art' in itself is such a vague term, meaning there's always space to challenge and re-interpret the term under new lights.
