What a wonderful surprise I found in my mailbox today!! This amazing book DigiTales: The Art of Digital Stories was sent to me by author Bernajean Porter, a new colleague I made contact with in Second Life recently. This book is a beautiful blend of the tradition of storytelling beliefs, theories and processes with the art of using new media for expression, emotion and creativity. The book is filled with magical quotes from literature, literary figures, academics, inventors, politicians, teachers, and story lovers. And whilst treating the subject with deep and critical thought and enthusiasm its also very funny. What an excellent resource this is. Thanks Bernajean!
