 Writable Web 

 Web-Native storytelling 




A way of enabling an experience
using the capability of the web
as a mechanism for narration
from the start of the authoring process



 Stories on the web

 Birth 



 Hyper 

 Media 


 Text 


 Film 


 Video 

 the Complex    

 the Changing    

 the Indeterminate 


Let me introduce the word “hypertext” to mean a body of written or pictorial material interconnected in such a complex way that it could not conveniently be presented or represented on paper.


 Hyper Film 


Films, sound recordings, and video recordings are also linear strings, basically for mechanical reasons. But these, too, can now be arranged as non-linear systems—for instance, lattices—for editing purposes, or for display with different emphasis. [...] The hyperfilm—a browsable or vari-sequenced movie—is only one of the possible hypermedia that require our attention.

 Making this work 


  1. I think I'm doing something then but will see. Looks great. Any reason for popcorn over zeega/storyplanet/klynt?

  2. popcorn.js = technology enabling creation of interfaces, zeega/sp/klynt = authoring tools for particular predesigned interfaces

  3. thanks for clearing that up. what filmmakers are most interested in - i think - are things that work. the techy stuff we leave to u!

 Collaborate 

Hi, there

As you might have noticed Storyplanet.com is currently down. The reason is that our servers and code have been taken hostage by two freelance developers who worked for us in the past. They claim we owe them quite a significant amount of money, and they wont reinstate Storyplanet.com unless we pay them. Unfortunately this is not an option, since we don’t respond to threats, and we wont pay for stuff that was never delivered.

I am extremely sorry for how this is affecting all of you out there who are taking part in our closed beta and supporting our idea.

We are currently working on what to do, and as a minimum get all the stories back up and running. However, there is no constructive dialogue with these people who are keeping our code hostage, so we can’t say when this crazy situation will be resolved.

Thanks for your understanding.
Bjarke Myrthu, Storyplanet founder & CEO
