Scott Walker: "Today, collaborative storytelling exists in many forms and utilizes many kinds of creative mechanics. With the advent of the Internet and the increasing tendency for consumers to produce their own content, the ability to collaborate on a project has never been easier."
Scott Walker: "In this post, Corey [Reid] talks about the benefits of combining an open world setting with traditional, linear stories and why (and how!) he’s using Creative Commons to integrate a collaborative world building framework with a structure for commercialization of stories set in that open world."
Mur Lafferty: "Worldbuilder is the open story world connected to Adam Christopher’s novel, “Empire State.” Most publishers worry about fanfic, but we welcome fan-created projects. We post connected stories, music, comics, etc on our page at Empirestate.cc."
Lucas J.W. Johnson: "Today's post is an old interview I did with the awesome Scott Walker over a year ago and never posted! He has kindly done a brief edit/update to it after being away from social media for a year. This was back when my main focus was transmedia -- these days he says his new ventures won't be in the transmedia sphere either -- but his thoughts on transmedia and shared story worlds are still interesting and relevant. Enjoy!"
"Clockwork Watch is an immersive participatory story set in a retro-futurist vision of Victorian England. The narrative is played out across graphic novels, interactive promenade theatre, freeform role-play, online adventures, an interactive book, and a feature film."

I wanted to see if I could have the LARP begin well before Wyrd Con and continue after the convention was over by using a persistent world setting as the backdrop for the LARP and having the story start before Wyrd Con and continue after the LARP.
[Wyrd Con is a "convention focused on live action role-playing (LARP)".]

Next, think about what you want your audience to be saying about you. Whether it’s in social media or walking out of the movie theater after the show, we all have something pretty specific we want to be buzzing off of people’s lips.
One of the questions posed to me when I guest Skyped into the Transmedia Vancouver Meetup regarded demographics and participation rates (i.e., is the traditional 90/9/1 rule still applicable in shared story worlds?).
