The Center for Future Storytelling: New Technology and the Changing Story.
I just read that M.I.T. is launching the Center for Future Storytelling to explore how new technology will change storytelling, sounds like really interesting. From the NYTimes,
Starting in 2010, a handful of faculty members — “principal investigators,” the university calls them — will join graduate students, undergraduate interns and visitors from the film and book worlds in examining, among other things, how virtual actors and “morphable” projectors (which instantly change the appearance of physical scenes) might affect a storytelling process that has already been considerably democratized by digital delivery.
