Yesterday, I went to a workshop on Creating Digital Stories by the Vermont Community Foundation... it was an all-day affair, and at first I wasn't sure my limited attention span would be able to handle it.
But then, we all started sharing stories... and then talking about which mediums would be best to portray them, and why... and we learned about the incredible variety of tools to do as such... and it was interesting and helpful. Some information I already knew, but a lot I didn't.
The best part though, is that I gained so much from other people's ideas. (I tend to work alone; that means I can get a lot done, but it can also mean I'm trapped in my own head a little too much.)
So last night when I came home, I gave cowbird.com a try. The result is far from polished; the narrative needs to be parred down and the inflection/articulation of my read-through would benefit from editing.
Still, I love the concept of sharing stories in such a simple way; it's effective, I think. So, here's my first attempt at sharing the story of PFCM's creation. (Some of you might have already read through the article when I sent it earlier in the Kickstarter campaign...)
Meanwhile, I have just two more days here in Vermont; by tomorrow evening I'll be back in Philly.
