9 Suddenly it is possible to give your story an audience of millions by simply uploading Suddenly a moment in time can be captured with sound and video and passed on, even long after the storyteller is gone

10 Suddenly, a story is a collaborative creation with many voices doing the telling. The story lies in the variety and diversity of perspectives, points of view, and collective knowledge Suddenly a story has the possibility to literally move on. The story takes on its own life, allowing all contributors and listeners to shape the story Inspired by Silvia Tolisano, langwitches.orgSilvia Tolisano
