How To Tell A Story—Right Now—From A Master Of Improv

How To Tell A Story—Right Now—From A Master Of Improv | Speculations and Trends | Scoop.it

What we say matters a great deal, but so does what we don’t say. There are times when you just can’t afford to clam up when called upon to contribute.

 

I love that this article is approaching storytelling skills from the field of improv -- because we receive a couple of good (maybe new) insights.

 

Like "whatever makes a memory a memory makes it interesting" and "know when to hold back."

 

Many of these are good common sense rules that can often be forgotten. And I just like that even though when you read closely, a lot of this material sounds familiar, the voice from the improv world makes me think about some of these tips in different ways. That is always a good thing!

 

Oh, and BTW  -- it is hard to find good articles on story TELLING skills. There is always tons of stuff on story structure and story crafting. But live storytelling skills -- not so much. Another reason I doubly appreciate this article!

Study: Watching live TV becoming less popular ... - Digital Trends | Speculations and Trends | Scoop.it
As more people transition to digital recording, consumers seem to prefer using the DVR over catching a television show when it's live.

 

This may be due to the fact that people enjoy a better control of their share of time and multitasking priorities.

Rare earth metals: Will we have enough?

Rare earth metals: Will we have enough? | Speculations and Trends | Scoop.it

Life in the 21st century wouldn't be the same without rare earth metals. Cell phones, iPads, laptops, televisions, hybrid cars, wind turbines, solar cells and many more products depend on rare earth metals to function. Will there be enough for us to continue our high-tech lifestyle and transition to a renewable energy economy? Do we need to turn to deep seabed or asteroid mining to meet future demand?

iPhone 5: a Better Drug

iPhone 5: a Better Drug | Speculations and Trends | Scoop.it
The new iPhone 5's leaner and thinner profile makes your old iPhone suddenly feel slow and heavy. It's a neat trick, and Apple is betting on it for big sales.

 

This is the trick: iPhone is new without being new: brings you to a new platform of itself, by copying itself, but bringing speed and weight confort into the balance. at the end of the day, iphone 4 looks slow and old and you do not want it any more. You are now addicted to a better drug"
