The little emblems for the philosophers are so fascinating! I'll just do the first two here; this is a book I could really enjoy working on from start to finish. There are 160 of these […]
I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole and can’t get out…..if it’s not linear, there is no end. No? Help. ps- video underway (*gulp*)
And here is the second round of emblems from the Viridarium chymicum in animated form (details here):

Storytelling Storytelling is about experimentation. Storytelling is about expression. Stories Stories make it possible to convey complex ideas, relationships, and dilemmas. Stories are the canvas we use to paint experiences. Storyreaders Storyreaders are the experience experimenters. Storyreaders are the experts.

There’s a term kicking around the new Networked Narratives course that I keep referring to and which I am curious to get to in the coming weeks: Civic Imagination. Mia Zamora hints at this a bit with her posts over at DML about the Networked Narratives course that is a hybrid between a university class and an open course (with Alan Levine), with the theme of digital storytelling. Mia’s terminology was on my mind yesterday as I listened to a keynote […]
It’s open and out of the gate. That is, the open, connected Networked Narratives course I am co-teaching with Mia Zamora. My paranoid self thinks all the colleagues I have talked to about this, and badgered into a slack Slack, are secretly shaking their heads at me. But with some early openings of a Daily Digital Alchemy, and rabid participating by folks like Kevin Hodgson, Terry Elliot, Laura Gibbs, Sandy Jensen Brown, we have a flow in the twitter waters […]
I am embarking on a whole new journey and I am really excited.
The ghost light vigil … let’s hope it shines some light where it needs to shine
In a post yesterday called What Is(n’t) a Story? , I mounted an argument by definition on what is and isn’t a story. Even though my friend Alan Levine is leery of such arguments; to wit: @twoodwar @sandramardene This is why I usually avoid definition discussions ;-)— Alan Levine (@cogdog) January 19, 2017 …in my world of teaching community college argumentation, the definition is a valuable opening move. It helps clarify thinking. It gives members of a discourse community like Networked Narratives […]
I am pitching this idea on Interactive Fiction Writing at the Technology in Education Conference in Western Massachusetts as part of the “unconference” part of the, eh, conference today. So, if my ideas gets accepted, you are probably here. If not accepted, you are still here. Welcome. Now, how about making a playable story? There are many posts here about Interactive Fiction and digital writing, if you are interested. Peace (in every direction), Kevin
When we forget. When we no longer remember. What happens to our stories? When we forget our own name. The names of our children. When we forget to put our teeth in. We forget our glasses are on our nose. What sort of stories do we need then?This picture has (at least) 2 n's for the daily challenge. #dda18
I like this picture (from unsplash.com) because it shows one road that appears as unconnected bits of tarmac. As a metaphor we can look at life as one road but with many twists and turns. Perhaps starting this course is like seeing disconnected, solid things.....that may, or may not connect up.Can you see the rider?Can you see some twisted "N" letters?(I really started Network Narratives over here.)
