So 2011 is almost at a close, a year that went past like a whirlwind. There’s been an enormous amount of interest in, and discussion of, the notion of transmedia over the past twelve months, and we’ve seen the term slowly creep into widespread use in Hollywood and on Madison Avenue ...
Here are the best bits of pop culture from 2011, the irresistible nuggets and undeniable trends that kept us hungry for more in 2012...

As we wrap up 2011, I've decided to compile a list of great Transmedia projects I have discovered through out the year. Most of these are a work in progress, but all are worth of the support of the Transmedia community...
In the past three months, players have demonstrated their willingness to pay for alternate reality games.

Was 2011 the best year in gaming so far? Take a look at our picks for top games and trends that defined the year.
"This is the second edition of the curation of this blog that I published a little over a month ago.

It’s hard to believe, but 2011 has (almost) come and gone. The Arab Spring, paywalls, Steve Jobs, and Occupy Wall Street (not to mention a Royal Wedding) dominated headlines. Here’s how some of it looked through Sparksheet’s lens.
[Especially interesting is Sparksheet's take on transmedia ...

Social media has not only been at the core of major protest stories, but drove some of 2011′s biggest news stories, from Occupy Wall Street to the Arab Spring.
Ringing the cinema to check film times, owning an encyclopaedia and dialling 1471 are among 50 things killed off by modern technology, according to a new poll.

2. Every connected consumer can reach back— through each screen.
