5 ways to tell a story

This may sound a little rudimentary but that's the point. WE consume so much information today that it's sometimes easy to forget what information really means and how it is both created and consumed.

  • Text
  • Audio
  • Images
  • Videos
  • Software (think game or data visualization)
