In a recent video from NBC Nightly News Ben Silbermann, the founder of Pinterest, shared that his childhood bug collection was part of the story that transformed his passion for nature and science into the third most popular site on the web. 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 Changes Improve Storytelling

How to use storytelling and NLP to create sales campaigns
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.

Using Great Storytelling To Grow Your Business Every two months, I pull together a community of innovators. 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.
[Jeff] As a new generation of creators, producers and executives rise to power, we're going to see an exciting new video design and integration sensibility come into play. Video will segue into and out of a more fully realized interactive experience, one that is going to be easily navigable even for those of us who weren't raised with a game controller in our hands. Brand owners and entertainment content producers are also going to realize that technology is further leveling the playing field and that huge swathes of target audience members are becoming capable of generating their own video.

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. 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. Rise of the Facebook-Killers
