This weeks assignment was to read “Web 2.0 Storytelling: The Emergence of a New Genre” and Seven Things You Should Know about Creative Commons.
The Web 2.0 article attempted to define and describe what digital storytelling is. After reading it, I don’t feel that I learned anything I didn’t already know. The 50+ ways article was probably the only part of the article that was really interesting to me (it reminded me of the person who made a Bag of Gold Adobe After Effects video). It will be interesting to see where web storytelling goes, as the Internet as a platform for telling story telling gains acceptance.
I skimmed through the Creative Commons article, as I’m already fairly well versed in the matter. The Creative Commons is a must-have for the sharing of intellectual property on the web.
