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 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.
