    Remix 06: Blending, Bending and Befriending Content

    Innovative Content Development in New Media has some of the following characteristics (This is by no means a comprehensive list.):
    _______________
    Imaginative storytelling (Breaking the rules and building new ones)
    _______________
    Not derivative (but can be a copy—mush — experimental cinema and music as models)
    _______________
    Aware of aesthetics, form and feel (Use OF Technology — Not Used by Technology)
    _______________
    Creating new knowledge and information (Play in every sense of the word.)
    _______________
    Aware of collage, montage and other techniques of bricolage (Stories can make the impossible real — photo-realism is a dead end)
    _______________
    Talent (Learning and Education and Research)
    _______________
    Decentralized modes of information gathering, exchange and distribution (Open Source)
    _______________
    Interactivity (Video games create the illusion of interactivity — interactive game play should be about a complete transformation of the game by the player — interactivity becomes creativity)
    _______________
    Bring body movement into the video game storytelling equation (Hands are not enough — Wii)
    _______________
    Link popular culture, games, books, magazines, fans, television and the web into content development (Specialized studios need cultural analysts and ethnographers as much as they need creators)
    _______________
    Work with audiences not against them (Fan movements, fansites, fan literature)
    _______________
    Assume that trends will shift as quickly as they are recognized — old style marketing will not work (Time is compressed but that does not mean that clip stories will last — marketing becomes discovering stories as well as creating them)
    _______________
    Non-linearity, complexity and chaos are at the center of digital content creation
    _______________
    Simulations are only as effective as the stories that underly them — Algorithms are culture
    _______________
    Telepresence and visualization need haptics and vice versa (Dreams are the Royal Road into Storytelling)
    _______________
    Narrowcast not broadcast (P2P will become C2C)
