Penguin, Macmillan and Nosy Crow talk digital books for children | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
How publishers can make reading experiences that parents feel 'more positive about than Angry Birds'.

Thoughts on Digital Hollywood New York – March 2012

Thoughts on Digital Hollywood New York – March 2012 | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
I’ll be honest: I wasn’t that excited about going to Digital Hollywood today. I’ve become a little burned out on conferences and the often circular nature of panel discussion. However, despite my expectations (or perhaps because of them), I thought Digital Hollywood in New York today was superb, with a ton of solid insight into both creative and business endeavors.

Inventing the Digital Medium: An Interview with Janet Murray (Part One)

Inventing the Digital Medium: An Interview with Janet Murray (Part One) | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it

Henry Jenkins: "I first met Janet Murray when I arrived at MIT almost 25 years ago. At the time, she was working on her book, Hamlet on the Holodeck: The Future of Narrative in Cyberspace, while I was working on Textual Poachers: Television Fans and Participatory Culture. Murray, along with the members of the Narrative Intelligence Reading Group, was an early guide for me to the emerging realm of digital culture and helped to shape my thinking in ways that I will never be able to fully acknowledge."

 

[This is the first in a very interesting series of posts from Henry Jenkins' interview with Janet Murray.  You'll be able to read the full series as all the post are now available @ http://henryjenkins.org/2012/02/an_interview_with_janet_murray.html]

By pushing the boundaries of what is considered traditional documentary filmmaking, they are stepping up to compete for the eyes of a generation raised on the often outrageous, unfiltered and unedited user-generated videos that can be found on YouTube and the conflict-driven, scripted reality TV that fills networks.
