Storytelling by blog: Project 1968

Project 1968 is another story told by blogs, with several features worth noting.

  1. Two distinct voices build the narrative, each character with her own blog (Amy and Janine).  The pair are linked by the main blog site.
  2. The texts are grounded in historical documents, making the story a kind of remix.
  3. The whole thing is explained by an introduction, a reader’s guide, and pointers to resources.  Like the Pepys Diary blog, unlike an alternate reality game, a hoax, or a story whose truth is radically uncertain (for example).
