Storytellers can inspire new technology but also serve as the canary in the coal mine. We tend to pay more attention to inspiration part and ignore the second part . It’s vitally important that we pay attention to both, and my talk explores the lessons we have learned so far and what will happen if we don’t apply them as media and technology evolve.
