So the second part of Week 1 Network Narratives was to tell a story, digitally, about an object on your keychain. Here you go. And a caveat. I kind of think this is cheating. This is an oral story that uses digital technolgy to record and share. If I had any chops at all, I'd remix this. But, well, I guess "if" says it all. And I also don't have a lot of time.
Two friends -- Mia Zamora and Alan Levine -- are experimenting with a new college and connected course -- Network Narratives. You can find it here: http://netnarr.arganee.world/ As with anything that Alan is involved in it is wild and fresh and slightly confusing and slightly unnerving; ONE of Alan's strengths is taking you out of the expected, out of your habits.
So part 1, week 1 of this exercise is: What's a story? My answer: A problem gets resolved. What's a digital story? My answer: Using digital media to tell people about a problem that gets resolved.
