Infographic: Mapping The 70-Year Gestation Of Street Art | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
In the annals of "Fine Art History," graffiti is usually placed squarely outside of the mainstream dialogue. Usually, it’s relegated to a foggy category sometimes called Urban Art--or worse, Urban Contemporary.

Microsoft is working on some seriously interesting prototypes

This is super bulky as a prototype but imagine the possibilities when scaled down and embedded into something more wearable. I love the idea of being able to transform any surface into a multi touch interactive interface.

The Viper Vibe: YA Lit: the genre less valued - my.hsj.org | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

Too often, Young Adult Literature (YA Lit) shelves are ones less traveled. The genre has been stigmatized everywhere - from literary communities to schools - largely on the grounds that it lacks merit. In fact, many works of YA Lit share most qualities seen in works of universally agreed-upon literary merit.

Digital brands spark thrills and fear in children's entertainment industry

Digital brands spark thrills and fear in children's entertainment industry | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

"Wherever children are, we've got to be there with them."

 

No, not the words of an overbearing parent. The sentence above is what came from the lips of just about every broadcaster or producer who stepped onto the stage at the MIPJunior conference in Cannes this weekend.

 

The gist: lots of children are using tablets, laptops, smartphones, iPod touches and handheld games devices, so owners of children's brands and/or shows know they need to take them to those platforms.

 

Otherwise children will find other new characters and stories to love who are there ...

The Networking of Knowledge and Storytelling: David Weinberger for the Future of StoryTelling 2012

"Western culture's traditional system of knowledge is a stunning achievement," says author and Harvard Internet scholar David Weinberger at the outset of this thought-provoking video. "It made us the dominant species on the planet." But it was constructed as a series of stopping points: you asked a question, and you got an answer—on the page of a book or newspaper, say, or from an expert or a teacher. That system worked well when knowledge was put down on paper.

 

Now knowledge lives on the hyperlinked Net, and links offer a never-ending invitation to go further, to know more. What are the implications of a future in which human knowledge is no longer a finite compendium of scholarly works but rather a limitless, intricately connected network of people, ideas, and works? What happens when knowledge consists of all those pieces, connected in discussion and disagreement?

 

What happens, to quote Dr. Weinberger, when "the smartest person in the room is the room"? And what does all this mean for the storyteller? In venturing to answer that last question, Dr. Weinberger identifies the cardinal challenge of the storyteller in the age of networked knowledge: the duty to expose us to points of view other than our own, to free us from the "echo chamber" of narratives that merely reinforce what we already know or believe....
