About 500 screenings have been requested nationwide, with more than 32,000 tickets pre-reserved.

“Selfies provide a fun and deceptively trivial opportunity to consider how we represent ourselves, how we are read, and how those images circulate to form online communities,” he said..."

Surreal Vision is a UK company that reconstructs physical spaces as virtual worlds. That's an attractive technology for Oculus, which is working on virtual reality.

Combine Oculus and Surreal Vision and you have the potential to scan your living room into a game and then wander around a virtual version of it. Sure, that sounds boring, but it could also populate the virtual version with characters and objects..."

There are really creative individuals and organizations making some pretty compelling stories on Snapchat, and watching a story on Snapchat is less passive than you may think.
