"It was not long ago that producing multimedia digital content required expensive equipment and deep levels of technical expertise. We are at the point now where anyone can create and publish very compelling content with nothing more complex than a web browser.
"The point is not that these are professional level production tools, but that the barrier of entry to content creation can be drastically low. And you should find a new mode of creativity when the tool have some limits as to what they can do-- and find that the core of the story is much more important than a widget.
"What makes for a "story" here consists of more than one type of media (images + text, audio + images, etc) that are assembled on the web, and can be presented on the web or embedded into other web sites.
"And I am using the word "story" in a most general sense; it may be a deeply personal one of the digital storytelling variety, it may be a tale of a travel trip, a report on a project, or just a silly cartoon-- it is what you make. It's your story.
"This is a new version of the original 50+ Web 2.0 Ways to Tell a Story that was created in 2007. As of May 20, 2013 9:11 pm 34 are in the new site and some 30 are waiting in the wings!"
