Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 24, 2:51 PM

Simon has an excellent point about needing to learn from failure rather than just fail, but it's also true that we don't know if we're going to succeed or fail from the outset of any effort.  Most entrepreneurs BELIEVE they will succeed, which is what gives them the gumption, for lack of a better non-sexist descriptor, to undertake their venture.  What we don't want, and I'm sure Simon would agree, is people trying to anticipate the ROF (Return on Failure) and not try for fear of not being able to adequately recoop their effort in intellectual capital.  This calculation introduces the possibility of failure.


The expression "Fake it 'til you make it" exists for a reason.  By taking an outward stance of confidence, we 'trick' our brain into upping our chances of success.  Mind-body connection and all that.  E.g., if we stand up straighter we feel more powerful.  "Faking it" helps keep our brain on track rather than letting those internal voices sabotage our belief in ourselves and potential for success.  If we are conscious of the need to learn from failure, it creates yet another reason, in the convoluted way our thinking works, to avoid trying challenges that have risk, as all good challenges do.  But to Simon's point, we should celebrate the learning not the failures.  At the same time, we need to remember to celebrate the effort, grit and resilience that keeps us getting back in the game no matter what we think we learned.  Just that action is, in fact, an ROF that has cumulative psychological benefits over a lifetime.

Racontr, a French company that has been working on an online platform for interactive visual storytelling since 2013, has brought their product out of beta this week. I noticed it first at the Tribeca Film Festival's Tribeca Hacks in late 2013, and since then they have continued to add to the platform, completely mindful of the perils of responsive design on multiple devices, building the interface to be as visually-guided as possible, and, from the business side, changing their plan structure t

Esther D. Kustanowitz:  "A new transmedia website provides fresh content that expands the narrative world that will be established in June 2015's "Jurassic World" movie."

Dominique Taste's curator insight, February 9, 1:39 PM

Le site Jurassicworld est un exemple typique de plateforme transmedia pour un lancement de film. Il propose une expérience immersive complète dans le fameux parc d’attraction JurassicWorld pour mettre en haleine les fans jusqu'à la sortie du film le 12 juin 2015. Selon vos goûts cinématographiques, vous ne serez peut-être pas convaincu d'aller voir le film mais vous ne pourrez qu'apprécier la qualité du vrai faux site qui permet de se balader à l'envi, d'y suivre certains événements via webcam live, de réserver des packs de tourisme dans un hôtel Hilton (fictif). 

Le transmedia dynamise la narration et lui permet de s'étendre au delà des limites du scénario du film. 

Le site existe en français aussi : http://fr.jurassicworldintl.com/

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, February 10, 11:19 AM
