Kevin Moloney:  "I’ve written elsewhere that we’re living through a Cambrian Explosion in the ecology of media. [...]  And with this explosion has come a diversity of terms to describe new creations and new arrangements. Multimedia? Crossmedia? Transmedia? What is the difference? I get that question a lot, and it’s a good one."

Interesting question - More interesting is to study what happens to culture and artistic work when it meets new  media.

I work with the traditional art of storytelling, and study what happens when it´s performed in new digital media.

Thinking beyond screens

Karen B Wehner's insight:
Interesting new frontier evolving at the real-world edges of transmedia storytelling. The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:

 

Simon Staffans:  "When Latitude released their ”Future of Storytelling II” research report last year, some things stood out as pretty exceptional to me. One of them was that of all the people they’d talked to – mostly tech-savvy persons in Brazil, the US and the UK – a total of 94% said they wanted storytellers to actively move their narratives into the real world as well. I.e., the screen is no longer enough; stories should touch you physically as well, be a part of the world around you."
