Tell me your story

Sep 24, 2007

At lunch today with Michael Ruhlman, we talked about talking with people. I mentioned how much I learned from Jack Ricchiuto, author of (among other things) the jack/zen blog.

Today Jack writes about how storytelling talents are diminishing:

I suspect that the literacy of story telling declines with the emergence of public media. I saw this with my grandfather, 19th century born Italian shepherd, whose story telling diminished in direct proportion to the amount of TV he watched.

And earlier today, I got confirmation that I’m on the program for the third annual ConvergeSouth conference, to talk about how blogs and new media can be used to collect and promote storytelling. Join me for that discussion, please, in the comments and at the conference.
