One thing that’s been interesting to me lately is the way that digital media is changing the way we can tell stories. Sites like Facebook and Flickr and Twitter or even personal blogs give people space to tell their own stories. And storytellers like journalists can use these same spaces to tell stories in new ways.
I think that’s why I love this video — The Digital Story of the Nativity — so much. Times change and the way we tell stories can change, but there’s still something fundamentally awesome about a good story that can stand up to these changes, and even be enhanced through news ways of storytelling. I think that’s pretty cool.
Or maybe that’s all just a convoluted justification for me to share a video that just made me happy in all sorts of ways. In either case, enjoy.
And with that, have a great holiday, everyone! I am off to spend the next couple of days reading, drinking tea, eating amazing homemade food, and being a total dork with the best siblings in the entire world.
