Narrative Technologies founder and CEO Lise Quintana, digital author Eli Horowitz, digital polymath Russell Quinn and media inventor and novelist Robin Sloan share a free-flowing discussion illuminating the platforms, purposes, joys and pitfalls as tech innovations breathe new life into storytelling forms and formats.
Eli Horowitz is the coauthor of “The Silent History,” a digital novel; “The Clock Without a Face,” a treasure-hunt mystery; “Everything You Know Is Pong,” an illustrated cultural history of table tennis; and the forthcoming "The Pickle Index." Previously the managing editor and then publisher of McSweeney’s, his design work has been honored by I.D., Print, and the American Institute of Graphic Arts.
Russell Quinn is a product manager at Safari, partner at Sudden Oak Books, and independent consultant at False Vacuum. He previously served as McSweeney’s Digital Media Director.
Lise Quintana is the editor-in-chief behind Zoetic Press and the creator of Lithomobilus, an e-reading platform that allows for non-linear, multi-threaded literature. She's been a journalist, tech writer, and spam monkey, and left the cube farm to create new ways of making narrative.
Robin Sloane is the author of “Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore,” and a media thinker. He has worked at Poynter, Current TV, and Twitter, trying to figure out the future of media, and now is seriously engaged with the concept of media inventors.
