note to all “transmedia Storysellers” who pine on about narratives and story matters  etc….

“And so are our media, made newly social. Facebook and Twitter and Google+ and all the rest swim with time’s flow, rather than attempting to stanch it. And they are, despite that but mostly because of it, increasingly defining our journalism. They are also, as it were, McLuhanesque. (Google+: extension of man.) Because if McLuhan is to be believed, the much-discussed and often-assumed human need for narrative — or, at least, our need for narrative that has explicit beginnings and endings — may be contingent rather than implicit. Which means that as conditions change, so may — so will — we. We may evolve past our need, in other words, for containment, for conclusions, for answers.”

this aint gonna go over well with you writers trying to cash in on transmedia futures.. but hey. enjoy the ride.

Megan, i “feel” you.;)

Since Ive now provoked the “ban” from both  “COMMUNITIES” of one. ok maybe 2 posters, or 65 likes.;) Ill move my thoughts to here.  I dont ban, I dont “edit”  those who disagree with my ideas.  I also dont offer  “civility” while taking “private” control via “non privacy means like facebook or hidden emails” . But you all can read all the blogs posts in the context they offer.

 Transmedia. Just like the old media, bought and sold. Im Good with that;)


and the facebook “dialog” that considers LIKE a debate  🙂


Find the points of value made by its writer and some of its few commenters, but i suggest that you take notice of the writer who believes the “message is the medium.” and used a FACEBOOK “fan -group” method  for “constructing” a  “COMMUNITY”   that I , obviously not part of, could enter easily to LIKE  but  not speak “critical to points with my conviction strong” without the risk of being banned.

I wont be the first banned, 🙂  and Brooke, maybe i should post youre email “schooling” me here? Social media LIKE and all.;)?

Oh, and Brooke my hide is plenty tough from online shenigans and “thought leaders” that ive confronted over the years..yes. 20 plus years.  So what about  about that troubles you?

Im gonna leave facebook to my relatives , real friends and  rejected farmville cows. And Brooke, Ill be leaving your forum for one that has more than your idea of community values expressed and encouraged.

http://www.giantmice.com/  which of my comments at your blog were so “requiring of thick skin to read” ? why does hollywoods usage of the word “transmedia” threaten you so? 

WE create “Transmedia!?”– well, what about the OTHER?  They will come soon enough. In fact they already have.  Right on time.


PS- Brian, i did think that youre “LIKE” of my “troll comment” was wink -“sincere to its satirical-but serious points nature”..but then the ban hammer hit…. that ISNT the mediums message…and Brookes email to me, and her threats to ban me from a non substantial community forum.( no posters but 4) suggest that the LIKE interface tells some a different story.  Again, tough skin isnt my problem… and perhaps not yours either…. but “tough” when “actually expereinced via  “facebook” or the “overally mothered forum” –show’s those mediums failings…  and yes, no matter what the message is, the interface will interfere…… all interfaces do that by their nature. BUT im under no “law of facebook ”  not yet. god help us:)

Yeah,  I couldnt believe it either. Other than one reference to some “rich like me”  pyramid scheme book, none of the transmediates has “coined” the term yet and is babbling it all around LA. So considering I “did” most of the stuff you’all are doing this decade, in the last one, it seemed a good to grab. So I did.

Storyselling 101. I’ll be planning the seminars next.  Really.

Welcome to the Obvious

Hey, I didnt make it this way… but once some geeks made it so that every word (idea) on the networks got a penny attached to its click or datastream path and you all loved it… we got here.

transmedia- ccc- c3 – whatever- has always been formed from the media it uses. And this one is electric and 24/7 and owned by those who like to control everything.

You can get all hippy betterverse and edutainment “for the children” as you like… but we’re all forced by the medium we all agree on.. money, to be selling something…

So buck up, and admit it, you’re a storyseller. And now you’re finally broke enough to have to figure out what that networked PC or Video game console, or cell phone can be used for…

See you at a conference…;)
