Bjarke Myrthu - Life after the printing press
”The new campfire is this amazing grid created by little pieces that all merge together to our own individual stories.”
Bjarke Myrthu is CEO & founder of BLIND SPOT an interactive storytelling app for social media. In this talk he takes on a storytelling perspective and speaks about life after the printing press and how it’s changing the way we socialize, the way you work and the way you learn.
There is a fundamental change in the way that we tell stories and that change is due to the growing use of social media. The history behind storytelling began as a linear process with stories being told in front of a campfire as a social activity. Today storytelling online involve collective stories that humans share with each other and pass around the Internet. Time and space is no longer a limit for communication to flourish.
