WHAT'S HERE

You can find within the electronic borders of this website a collection of creative works, analysis, and conversations about all things having to do with media. This is not an advocacy website, for or against media, but it is the exploration of what it means to thrive in a world of technology where stories can be, and are, created and shared across multiple channels.

Create

Stories have endured across the millennia, first by storytellers gathered around a campfire and later through the printed word. And now, stories are told within 140 character limitations on Twitter, within a 60-second video, and a 60-minute podcast.

Share

When you create and analyze media, the last thing to do is share it with others. Nancy Duarte, in her TED talk said that ``if you have a good idea, you need to share it.`` Perhaps the ideas presented here will start an avalanche of new ideas for you and others. That's our Big Idea.

Measure

How are stories measured today? By the storyteller? Or, the receiver? Perhaps neither. Big Data is a phrase bantered about by analysts who track and pull information about both storytellers and receivers for use by corporations, nonprofits, and even governments. We explore the actions and reactions of users and creators.

STORYTELLING IN SOCIAL MEDIA

“Life is not obligated to give us what we expect,” wrote Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone with the Wind. When a family is thrust into an unexpected hardship, they find love and support in an unexpected place. Facebook Story is based on true events. The names of the individuals in the story have been changed as well as some of the events to provide privacy and healing for the family. Huge thanks to family and friends who assisted with the retelling of this story in Facebook. Read about the creative process in the making of Facebook Story by clicking here.
