My rambling about how people will be telling their stories for posterity got some attention and generated some other great ideas:
- VidLit may not fit anyone's idea of a personal memoir or e-portfolio, but watch either of the videos and think about how easy it is becoming to express ourselves with simple images and sound in addition to text. This is fantastic storytelling.
- I'm reading the Narnia series to Ivy right now and last night we read a passage in the Horse and His Boy where C.S. Lewis asks why schools don't teach storytelling -- it would certainly be more useful than learning to write essays.
- Stephen Harlow dug up LifeBits, which sounds like a fascinating experiment and includes all kinds of links to related resources
- Helen had kind words and pointed to StoryCorps, a wonderful project to get people talking to each other and recording their memories
