The Future of Storytelling: How you and your cellphone can reshape reality
Tuesday, December 4, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PST)
Santa Monica, CA
From the oldest cave painting to the shiniest new iPad, sharing stories between ourselves has always been at the heart of what it means to be human. Over time, people realized that storytelling can also shape historical narratives, current events, and change the way we perceive our world.
This is why throughout history, religious, cultural and governmental institutions have always exercised tight controls over how stories are told and who can tell them. But the breakneck speed of recent technology has suddenly upturned the old order, as we enter a new age where you...
yes, YOU are the center of the storytelling universe. We'll examine phenomena as diverse as the Arab Spring to sagging Hollywood box office returns and explore what the changes in technology and community participation mean for our future.
Ori's talk will be an expansion of a talk he gave recently, which can be viewed at left.
