Peter Suderman: "The old way of making television was built to accommodate viewers with no relationship to the show. The new way rewards viewers who have thoroughly mastered every minute of every episode."
Maya Zuckerman: "The metanarrative can be viewed as the synthesis of all stories, experiences, history, ideas, beliefs of all humanity. It is comprised of the narratives of all who ever lived. It is not so much a single narrative as it is an intertwining of all narratives reaching from the dawn of humanity and stretching to our destiny" ...

Bridget Ellis-Pegler: "It soon became clear that this story world wasn’t going to fit into a film, but needed a whole TV series, in fact, several seasons of TV series. And books. And a website. And a computer game – in other words, I’d created a huge transmedia beast!"
Henry Jenkins: "As my student Geoff Long likes to say, transmedia is an adjective, not a noun, and as such, it needs something to modify. Much of the conversation here has centered around transmedia entertainment, transmedia storytelling, or perhaps transmedia branding and transmedia learning. But, when the word transmedia modifies activism or mobilization, there is no more important voice in the world today than Lina Srivastava. In her hands, transmedia becomes a verb — something we do to make a difference in the world."
DRC: Part Two of this interview can be found here.
Yinglian Xie: "With the market booming so favorable, it is not surprising that online criminals have also found their way into the ecosystem and are creating a thriving underground market for in-game virtualgoods. How do they pull this off? Here are a few attack techniques we’ve observed in the wild."
Pascal Luban: "Episodic games are not making the headlines yet but they are quietly carving out their place in the industry. As a reminder, those games are sold in episodes. Each of them costs a few dollars and offers between one and three hours of gameplay. Those games can only be found in digital form; players must download them and they cannot be purchased in retail stores."
Nick Summers: "Virtual reality headsets can trick your eyes and ears into thinking you're someplace else, but what about the rest of your body? Alton Towers thinks it has the answer and, unsurprisingly, it involves a massive roller coaster."
Daniel Terdiman: "Lucasfilm released Jakku Spy, which puts viewers in the role of a Resistance agent in the desert world of Jakku, last month. But the company is only now, exclusively toFast Company, opening up to talk about the process behind its first foray into an official Star Wars VR experience."
Maya Zuckerman: "Having a Champion who supports, protects, and promotes the Steward at their work, is an incredibly powerful partnership. They activate one another, which in turn empowers their community as a whole."
Al Kennedy: "I do care about everything I write, but dealing with a hugely loved character and 50 years of world-building – that felt different. Different in the sense of being horrifying and wonderful."
"The New York Times Opinion section presents three groundbreaking virtual reality films from the Sundance New Frontier lineup. These videos explore a range of topics and new approaches to nonfiction storytelling."
Alastair Sooke: '"The idea was to experiment with fiction online using the language of the internet," she [Amalia Ulman] explains, "rather than trying to adapt old media to the internet, as has been done with mini-series on YouTube. The cadence and rhythm were totally different."'
Kristen Santer: "The annual Sundance infographic is back to shed some light into how the films from last year's festival performed over the past 12 months, and many of the statistics reveal disheartening information."
