A summary of five whirlwind months on the fringes of the ever-expanding world of generative AI.
Thus far we’ve covered quite a lot of aspects in this journey. We're moving towards a better understanding of how we need to view our projects and what questions we need to ask. What we want to arrive at is a better understanding of how our projects can reach and engage people, either long or…Read more Reach, visibility and engagement part five – longevity￼
In this post we’ll look at a couple of important facets to take into consideration when looking at your project from an outreach and engagement perspective. I’ve tried out several different terms but the ones I feel mirror these facets the best are Intensity and Polarisation. Polarisation is quite self-evident - is your project one…Read more Reach, visibility and engagement part four – intensity and polarisation
Here we are in mid-March, and one of the most intriguing narratives of the past few years is still unfolding. Yeah, the Gamestop saga shows no signs of abating anytime soon - far from it. If any of the due diligence posted over the past month is anything to go by, this whole thing could…Read more Gamestop – the saga continues
There’s a great article up on Reforge that looks at the demise of Quibi, the “Quick Bites, Big Stories” platform that launched with an eye-watering backing of 1,75 billion US$ in April this year.

Those were the days when I was writing…Read more Transmedia and the Traditional Media
It’s been a couple of years since I last updated one of my more popular posts on this blog - the “First steps in transmedia” post that originated in 2014 and has been updated a few times since. Back in the day, transmedia had matured from the original phenomenon. To some extent, I then felt…Read more The second steps in transmedia
In my podcast series “Evolving Media” (yeah, my imagination didn’t reach further than just taking the name from this blog and using it for the podcast series as well… but hey, why change a winning concept?) I’m privileged to be able to chat with some of the brighter minds in the media sphere to talk…Read more Checklist for creators – are we really doing what we should be doing?
