storysampling #ds106

1 min read

One of the things that makes digital storytelling different is potential for non-linearity. We could ask though, if it's not linear, is it a story? But if not, then what is it? This blog http://tomlengel.com/uncategorized/log-in-log-off-digital-karate-kid/ invites us to look at Karate Kid on Giphy. This gives us dozens of moving snapshots of the story all at once. It's like running the story through a blender and chugging it down with a funnel. We don't get the up and down drama that gives the story a Vonnegutian shape, but rather an impression of what the movie looks like. Maybe storysampling would be a good term for it.
