Pinterest Changes Improve Storytelling

Ben developed Pinterest as a place for individuals to share their own stories, interests and passions in a digital sense, with the goal of connecting online inspiration with offline action. When it comes to Pinterest, a hobby as unique as bug collecting can be the start of a story that means so much more. Pinterest is grounded in the simplicity of collecting, sharing and discovering images of inspiration and passion. Yet, what I find to be the beauty/addiction of Pinterest are the stories that are discovered between every pin. Timehop. Transmedia Storytelling and Journalism · lorenatarcia.

By Maria Popova The new language of the creative polyglot, or what tweets have to do with portfolios. Much has been said over the past few years about the future of publishing and content on the web.

Terms like “transmedia storytelling” and “cross-platform publishing” are tossed around like giant balls of cotton candy — delicious, fluffy but, ultimately, without much substance. And while certain platforms have made multimedia storytelling possible for publishers and visual artists, none offers a truly holistic proposition. This week, the launch of projeqt offers hope for a platform that does it all and then some. Great stories keep us riveted to the page. We’re thrilled about the creative possibilities with projeqt.

Using Great Storytelling To Grow Your Business

We meet somewhere in New York City, usually a boardroom overlooking a park or cityscape. But last month we all found our way into an acting studio operated by The TAI Group to learn about storytelling. The members of this group certainly already know something about the topic. They are senior executives at some of the largest corporations, partners in some of the most prestigious consulting and private equity firms, and several cutting-edge entrepreneurs. But the more you know, the more you realize there is to learn, and this group wanted to learn more about how to use effective storytelling to drive change in and grow their organizations. The experience shocked me, to be honest. 1) Use lots of LOTS. 2) Build on your story spine. Not convinced? Reality introduced: A dark room is filled with 20 executives and entrepreneurs resting on chairs in rows facing two director chairs.

Megan Elliot was kind enough to invite me as a guest (thank you Megan!). I think he should tour again next year and I hope this post will help to make that happen. The low down on Jeff’s transmedia credits include: Avatar, Tron, Transformers, Pirates of the Caribbean, Hotwheels and Coca Cola’s The Happiness Factory. I was fortunate to learn from the number one transmedia guru, who begun his class with an ancient proverb – The shortest distance between two people is a story. The first of its kind in the world, this one-day masterclass promised to deliver practical, how-to, hands-on training to help ramp up your income with transmedia storytelling. 1.0 – Threshold assessment.

Rise of the Facebook-Killers. On a cold Friday evening in February two years ago, with a historic blizzard bearing down on the Eastern Seaboard, a small crowd of people bundled into a New York University lecture hall to hear a talk that would become something of a legend, a shot heard 'round the Internet.

Rise of the Facebook-Killers

The speaker of the evening was Eben Moglen, a professor at Columbia Law School and the founder of the Software Freedom Law Center. A stocky man with a white beard, glasses, and a high, nasal voice, Moglen spoke casually and rocked back and forth on his heels as he turned to make eye contact with his audience. "So, of course, I didn't have any date tonight," Moglen began, deadpan. "Everybody knows that. My calendar's on the Web.

If you answered ‘yes’ to that, I’m a little concerned. But if that question has stirred your curiosity, let me introduce you to lets individuals, groups, organisations…anyone…combine online presentations with video, and make them viewable ‘on demand’. “Imagine for a second you were with me in a room right now,” ponders co-founder Richard Garnett,” and I was your teacher, with some maths maybe. Or your lawyer with a contract, or your architect with some plans. Garnett’s pitch sets the tone rather nicely for what is all about. Indeed, whilst services such as WebEx and Skype facilitate virtual presentations, the presenter and presentee need to be available at the same time.
