Weaving Narrative Threads in Virtual Worlds

How do non-linear narratives work? Do these story quests make for greater
immersion and understanding? How can they be used to help further
understanding and a deeper connection with people living withHIV/AIDS?

Host Robert Bloomfield will interview three people who came together to
create story quests – non-linear narratives in a virtual environment – that
celebrated the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS for World AIDSDay. Join
us on December 9, 2009 at 12pm PST<http://www.metanomics.net/about/join_in/>
 as he asks Jena Ball            , Brent Ward             and Christina
Galanis             about the need for narrative threads in enterprise;
about the importance of utilizing real stories (such as theRyan White
story<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryan_White>
 shared on World AIDS Day) to move, engage, educate, and help everyone find
common ground.

Last week’s Metanomics’ show, titled “Total Engagement – Gaming the
Workplace<http://www.metanomics.net/show/total_engagement_-_gaming_the_workplace/>,”
discussed how narratives can be used to create context for information and
as a tool for driving innovation within the workplace. Narratives are ideal
frameworks for information They form the connective tissue between people
and organizations, giving them not only a way to weave the threads of their
individual messages into common themes and goals, but a way to create
understanding and empathy as well.
