OK  a  personal moment of levity.  Ha ha ha ha hee hee. You know i tried to reach Jaunt after they put out an open invitation for anyone with experience to call them. They did not even have the courtesyto respond!

Much like Mr Einstein and Tesla  i am man who wants to share his experience and knowledge  but it seems they are all locked up in their own little world and think that IP should remain 100 percent theirs.  There is not one part of what they have attempted to do original! They are  stumbling along a road that many others conquered long ago. They may be motivated, inspired, possibly passionate. STUDIO  Execs of LA  if you invest in these folks you are  investing in hard development and  it will still take them years to figure it out unless they just copy the proposed solutions i put forth over the years. OR you could hire me. However i think with my hard critique they will take it personally and not respond anyway!

I do like having a blog it allows me to vent my frustrations :-)

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.

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.
