WikiStage Maison de l'Europe de Paris 1. Paris, France, 2014

Nowadays, written information is not sufficient anymore, especially when the Encyclopedia has been replaced by Wikipedia. But thanks to the numerical techniques that surround us now, it becomes very easy and useful to put in place a video Encyclopedia. Before writing was invented, we used our body to express ourselves: gestures, sign language, or voice variations. Our brains evolved and our society changed, leading towards abstract ways of expression such as writing. But try to put in writing the feelings of a symphony or the beauty of a dance.From the printing press to Youtube, knowledge passed through the decades, and now it is time to change the way to share it. And videos are here to help us convey ideas, debate, and learn.So, making a video encyclopedia was pretty evident. Its aim is to arouse curiosity. And for that, it is not sufficient that knowledge is there, passively waiting on a bookshelf or in a database. No. It should jump off that shelf, put itself in front of you to attract your attention. "Today there is a new tool that has a huge impact. YouTube has more than one billion visitors each month. In a way, videos are the new printing press." " A picture is 1000 words and 1000 images is a video." " The aim is to arouse curiosity. And for that, it is not enough that knowledge is there, passively waiting on a bookshelf or in a database. No. It should jump off that shelf, put itself in front of you and move around to attract your attention." Johannes BITTEL @WikiStage Maison de l'Europe de Paris

Future of Storytelling 2015. New York, United States, 2015

2015 Future of StoryTelling Summit Speaker: Gaia Dempsey Managing Director, DAQRI International Apply to attend: fost.org We understand our world through stories. That layer of narrative locks in our experiences, teaching us to remember what we’ve observed. Gaia Dempsey, through her work at DAQRI, has learned that augmented reality doesn’t change that—it just emphasizes it. By applying digital information over the real world, augmented reality allows us to break up what we see into new spaces and interact with them in a new way. Imagine looking at a toolbox and seeing a floating explanation of every tool inside it; or a complex panel of controls overlaid with instructions for exactly how to interact with it, step by step. It’s an incredible new way to learn, to communicate, and to engage. Dempsey will discuss how augmented reality is developing and where it’s heading at this year’s FoST.
