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 means and how it is both created and consumed.  As an app producer and storyteller, this is how I stay grounded.  This is the mental framework I use to help myself identify an innovation or moment of creativity. This is also how I keep myself from chasing every newly available technology.

There are only five ways to tell a story. Those five ways are through:

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