there was this one time… at band camp… March 18, 2011Posted by nicholas gill in facebook, story telling.
Memorable status updates. Tapping into the tales we regale/bore each other senseless with. For the Facebook age. Told in status updates. That may or may not be memorable. So far. Cam (legend tells of our legendary Digital Creative Director) has said some memorable things to me. Most of them unrepeatable. With due respect to Cam, I don’t think the four above fit into that. But here’s the thing. Google knows stuff about you. Facebook knows stuff about you. The technology that looks increasingly like Skynet knows stuff about you even you didn’t know. So one day, when they figure out Sarah Connor must be destroyed, you will get a memorable status update that stops you in your tracks. Makes you laugh. Makes you cry. Makes you happy. And you’ll look at it again. Because we tell stories. And we capture them in real-time. Only looking back at photos. Currently. This brings the words and emotion back through yours and your friends narratives.
