The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Charlie Jane Anders:  "Worldbuilding is the bedrock of science fiction and fantasy. We obsess about it constantly, because characters and plots are often only as compelling as the worlds they inhabit. We've decried bad worldbuilding before -- but what makes worldbuilding great?"

Dit is een studie naar het succes van het organiseren van oa. social media voor de immigranten beweging van 2006-2012 in de VS. Op verschillende platforms waren demonstranten en actievoerders actief tegen bijvoorbeeld de 'Sensenbrenner Bill' (Border Protection, Anti-terrorism and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005).

David Collet's curator insight, November 12, 10:16 PM

Once again, about creating new career paths and opportunities.

 

This is something that I have noticed several years ago. Most of the new stuff is coming by way of the new media. Newspapers and Magazines are still around but not nearly as relevant.

 

The main message I get from this article is that while the medium may have changed, the message remains the same. Convince your audience of your sincerity in a niche, and you will draw the audience. Draw the audience and you will (eventually) get financial reward.

 

And as an aside, I believe it to be much more difficult to convince a diverse audience of your sincerity if it is not genuine. Because this becomes a universe of niche's, most people devoted to a particular niche can recognize a fake pretty quickly.

Dominique Taste's curator insight, November 7, 1:01 PM

Le storytelling,devient un atout des musées européens face à l'industrie du divertissement. Il leur permet de créer de l' "eduvertissement" (edutainment)en multipliant les expériences narratives sous diverses formes (audio, video, digitales, intercatives, en réalité augmentée). Le CHESS (Cultural Heritage Experiences through Socio-personnal intercations and Storytelling) propulse le storytelling au coeur des nouvelles expériences où s'immergera le visiteur du futur. L'Acropole à Athènes et la Cité de l'Espace en sont 2 exemples inspirés.
