The web has created boundless opportunities for new forms of storytelling by news organizations, brands, bloggers… anyone. But the forms those stories take still feel like they're lagging decades behind.
In this discussion panelists explored the technological and economic reasons behind the slowness of this evolution, and why it’s imperative that news organizations push the boundaries for their survival. They talked about the emerging tools and tactics that will, with enough imagination and drive, create truly new storytelling forms that take full advantage of digital media's unique qualities.
