  • Ivan that's an excellent question. One of the exciting aspects to me is that blur within authorship which raises many interesting issues regarding control. I've found that it's like a bullet hole in glass. There is a core vision and then as the glass cracks and spider webs it offers many exciting opportunities for story paths. When we design we are also considering audience consumption and we leave room for the audience to shape story elements themselves. In a sense this is an opportunity to do R&D around stories and the process in which they're created, delivered and discovered. The Mad Men slide was developed by @alexjohnson_ for a separate presentation but it struck me as an interesting example of story extension.

  • Great deck! Though I'm curious about Slide 5 -- since there's no script, it's hard to know if this is part of your point -- but the in-character Mad Men Tweets were not an official effort. They were a fan-hijacking that AMC almost shut down, then allowed to continue... and I think the flash mobs and business cards might have been the same, but it's hard to tell.

    For this particular presentation, do you feel like it matters if the use of social media begins on the 'official' side, or is organic amongst the audience?
