Convergence is a fairy tale (told by those who miss the good old days)
Elements ofConvergence• Capabilities of technology• People doing stuff• Narrative and storytelling

Are people all doing the same thing now? Have our activities converged?
Do we consume fewer types of stories? Is there a story-format convergence?
