Storytelling

Viv Mcwaters

There is a certain embarrassment about being a storyteller in these times when stories are considered not quite as satisfying as statements and statements not quite as satisfying as statistics; but in the long run, a people is known, not by its statements or its statistics, but by the stories it tells.

"Storytelling adds human touch to virtual work"

Endless Knots

Storytelling does that--and Kathy Hansen has been collecting up some very good stories of storytellers on her blog, A Storied Career. It was at about this same time that my interest in storytelling was burgeoning; thus, I'm quite interested in convergences between virtual work and storytelling. In her Q&A with A Storied Career , she discussed the value of storytelling in virtual teams.

Via Beth Kanter , we got in touch with Steve Bridger who did a presentation on online fundraising. I missed it, but I'll definitely go through his presentation! It was nice to meet up, but even more surprising is that I only found out back home that he is the blogger of the npf2 blog, which I already followed via my bloglines. I realise it's more fun to read a blog when you know something about the blogger. And realize I had never shown any interest in the writers of some of the blogs I read.
