i-Docs: website of this emerging interactive documentary form

"You will find a number of definitions and points-of-view on what constitutes an interactive documentary. At this point in the development of this fast-moving field we feel that it is important to have an expansive definition that can embrace the many different kinds of work that are emerging. The i-Docs site includes coverage of projects that you may find elsewhere described as web-docs, transmedia documentaries, serious games, cross-platform docs, locative docs, docu-games, pervasive media. For us any project that starts with an intention to document the 'real' and that does so by using digital interactive technology can be considered an i-doc. What unites all these projects is this intersection between digital interactive technology and documentary practice. Where these two things come together, the audience become active agents within documentary – making the work unfold through their interaction and often contributing content. If documentary is about telling stories about our shared world; we are interested in what happens as the audience get more closely involved in this way. At the heart of i-Docs is the question; what opportunities emerge as documentary becomes something that is co-created?"

How the Guardian built multimedia interactive Firestorm

"Firestorm, the Guardian's multimedia interactive centred around this year's bushfires in Tasmania, was launched in tandem with Guardian Australia and has received widespread praise on the web for its moving and immersive portrayal of a crisis.

The interactive combines feature writer Jon Henley's text with video and audio footage, some shot by the Guardian team and some supplied by residents of Dunalley, the town at the heart of the story, as well as interviews with residents and maps of the area."

How Apple Invented The Future (and the iPad) in 1986

"While most attribute the iPad's success to Steve Jobs' genius, its roots extend much deeper into Apple's history of creativity and innovation. That's because Apple laid out an amazingly prescient vision of the iPad in 1987. That earlier effort was a guiding beacon for Apple's culture and research for a decade during Job's exile. It helped secure the ingredients that Jobs would mold into the world's most valuable company. And, it defined the personal computing model that technology titans, including Apple, Google, Amazon, and Microsoft, are fighting to deliver and dominate today."
