I’m briefly interviewed in this OCLC newsletter. There I connect futurism and storytelling:
“Digital storytelling, for example,” he explains,“opens up manifold possibilities for expression and recollection, which also means multiple spaces for informational innovation.”
Bryan says that digital storytelling involves deep personal engagement, a reduction in technology anxiety and a reconsideration of narrative. Because of this, using new storytelling modes can actually make you more creative while you develop your innovation message.
“These new kinds of storytelling,” he continues, “require finding and using multimedia files ranging from personal content swarms to the full spectrum of licensed and open Web content. It teaches creators about copyright, identifying legitimate open content sources, explaining the use of licensed material, and handling files to maximize integration.”
