Stories are taking over
"The inimitable Ian Bogost with some thinking on how stories are overtaking social media and how they are perhaps the first true smartphone media format. First, what are stories in this context? “Story” is a terrible name for this feature, because it’s so broad as to descend into meaninglessness.

Storytelling in Dashboards
"Commonly we reduce these two modes into:
Explanatory = has a story e.g. scrollytelling
Exploratory = doesn't have a story e.g. dashboards

I want to reframe this analogy. When done well, exploratory data visualizations do have a story. It's a choose your own adventure story, a branching narrative."

Making up Stories: Perception, Language, and the Web
"Stories have been around as long as we have, helping us understand our world and ourselves. We learn and retain information best through stories, because they turn information into more than the sum of its parts. But what makes a story a story, and what does it mean for the digital world we’ve built?
