    Should be particularly cool for iPad users I would think–iPhone screen is a little small/cramped for much more than a simple string of images.

    Is it me or is “story” experiencing a renaissance? Is it the rise of technologies that enable storytelling, or is it that we as humans are seeking out ways to reconnect?

      @Nicole – No, I don’t think it;s just you – went to an exhibit of student artwork from six area colleges this past weekend – and what struck me (and others) is that so much of the student work was narrative. No matter the media (digital, paintings, sculpture), almost every piece (or series of pieces) told a story. This is trend worth watching.
