The Lost Blog Post

Martha pointed out on Thursday that somehow when my blog was having problems at the start of the semester one of my oldest posts (the web20assignment) did not actually get posted (Instead it was posted to my other wordpress page on umwblogs for a different class… a complete mess I was happy to forget about).

The Digital Platform for Storytelling

As the internet has progressed and the ability to use it has become easier and more efficient, the average user’s functional capacity has widened. The oral tradition of storytelling has been a property of human culture since the beginning. The ways of communicating have expanded from hearsay to literature; and it continues to progress through the use of the internet. The platform the internet provides is ideal for storytelling in that it allows you to express your ideas and reach… (more…)

understanding web2.0

http://digitalstorytelling.umwblogs.org/files/2010/01/web2.0_storytelling.pdf In my eyes Web 2.0 is a representation of the next/current synthesis in the future of the internet and networking.  The internet continues to grow and show us more and more ways to “connect the dots” between us.  Storytelling, being representative of human behavior, is at the center of the web 2.0 movement.  Alexander […]

WEB 2.0 Impressions

After reading the article I was surprised I had never heard of the term WEB 2.0 before. Growing up in a generation that had witnessed much of the evolution of Internet, I can certainly say it has had a tremendous effect on me and undoubtedly many of my peers. It used to be only the […] ↓ Read the rest of this entry…

Web 2.0 & Creative Commons

I thought the Web 2.0 article was alright. It was extremely long, and I got a little drowsy along the way, but I thought there was a lot of good information in there. It’s obviously true that society in general is continuing to become more and more digital. (There are certain areas that fall under […]

Web20assignment

The Web 2.0 article by Bryan Alexander and Alan Levine definitely had aspects that resonated me. And I think with me it accomplished its’ goal, which was to make me more interested in digital storytelling.

Web 2.0 Reaction

The part of the Web 2.0 reading that most caught my attention was when the authors said that the outcome of web 2.0 and micropublishing could drastically lower the bar for “participation and publishing” (http://digitalstorytelling.umwblogs.org/files/2010/01/web2.0_storytelling.pdf pg. 42) because there is some really unintelligent content out on the internet that one would possibly never see published […]

Initial Thoughts About Web 2.0 Storytelling

I found both of this week’s readings very insightful, especially the Web 2.0 Storytelling article. I completely agree with it when it explains how telling a story in the modern world is fairly easy especially when you are looking for a large audience to tell it to. Although storytelling over the web is extremely common […]

Web20assignment

When reading these assignments I was hearing a lot of things that I had already learned or learned from last weeks reading.  It was all about how creating a digital story on the web is growing and how people are doing it.  The “Creative Commons” article was really interesting to me because I am also […]

Readings Week Two

The article “ “Web 2.0 Storytelling: The Emergence of a New Genre”” I think had a lot of interesting points made throughout the reading.  The first point that caught my attention was findability.  A great factor of the Web 2.0 was the search tool that made it easier to find certain topics you might want to […]

web20assignment

I recently read two articles for class about Web 2.0 storytelling and creative commons. I found the Web 2.0 article long and dry. I agree that telling stories over the internet can bring out a lot of creativity in people with the ability to use animation and add pictures, but this could also lead to […]
