Let me begin by saying: reports of the death of the book are wildly exaggerated. Likewise traditional storytelling. Human beings have been telling stories around campfires since the first cavewoman struck a flint against another flint and noticed that an interesting spark flew off. Stories aren't going anywhere and nor is the visceral, inexplicable, bone-deep shivery delight of a good tale well told.
What happens, however, is that new technologies give creative people new ideas. Art and science (or technology) are often imagined to be totally separate – but this is not, and never has been, true. Art is affected by the technology of art, because artists love to experiment, and every new development is a new tool.
This is where we are now with storytelling: interesting developments are happening. New tools are being created so fast that it's hard to keep up with them. It's a good time, a fascinating one, and in the end these developments do as much to help us recapture the past of storytelling as to invent their future.
