What is Digital and Interactive Storytelling?

digital John

Great storytelling is the cornerstone of successful people and how they captivate
us. Engaging stories move people, influence what we buy, and drives businesses.
Branson, Beyonce, Obama, Rowling, Neistat, Sandberg and Jobs have equally mastered
a spectrum of techniques and emergent technologies to leverage their reach and utility.
So why is digital and interactive storytelling emerging as one of the fastest growing fields?
