  • 60. Jonathan HarrisThe Never-Ending Story“So, how can we raise the stakes?A lot of online platforms are missing an important aspect in storytelling,which is the listening part.Can you build that type of engagement through technology?Well, one of the pieces of this system I’ve been building is that to tell the story you have todedicate it to somebody, which creates a gift economy of stories.It’s like changing the scale of the discourse, a deeper phenomenon of one story beinganswered with another story being answered with another story.So, is it the need to reciprocate the gift story that will drive peopleto engage with the new platform?Y but it is also that it takes a little bit of the loneliness out of online existence, which es,can stem from just shouting into the void. It’s more like sending a letter instead. There’s ahard-wired connection between two points, even if there are other things existing aroundthat rope. I don’t think you can resist technology. It’s far too powerful, so what you do isshape it into a place that you want to live or the way you want to live with it.
