The Internet is the Next Great Story
Storytelling via the Internet needs a better name.
The history of storytelling is an epic tale of technological revolution. Each major communications invention is a transcendent extension of the storyteller and the invented medium. (The medium is the message.) The domains of history, epistemology, anthropology, linguistics, cosmology, and other sciences pay homage to this idea. Such domains are also a tale about how mythology developed through semiotics. The back story usually hinges on long-lost civilizations and oral or written evidence or tradition. But ancient history is vague where individual storytellers are concerned.
