On Boing Boing, Cory Doctorow describes a demonstration of Storytron, the new interactive storytelling technology developed by Chris Crawford. Additionally, Dr. Dobb’s Journal has an interview with Chris about it.
It looks like a next generation version of his previous effort, the Erasmatron, only this time it has a bigger team (i.e. not just Chris), and it looks more accessible. This is not damning with faint praise: I feel the Erasmatron had a lot of unrealised potential, and the Storytron seems a better attempt to, well, realise it. I also think the world might be a bit more ready for it this time. It’s going to be interesting to see how it will develop.
