Overview: The human race has an appetite for stories that is ancient and insatiable. Whenever a new medium appears, it is flooded with stories, which immediately take the shape best suited for that medium. In this talk, we will examine the history of how different mediums have shaped and re-shaped the story, cull out the most useful patterns, use them to look forward to the mediums we know are coming next, and make some bold predictions about the shape of stories to come.
