The Intertextual Animal Big

The Intertextual Animal [Video Series]

The Intertextual Animal is a monthly video series of conversations about content writing, textuality and the power of linked words, thoughts, people and data.

The themes of the series revolve around:

  • Writing for the Web
  • The Semantic Web
  • Intertextuality
  • Empathy
  • Human connection
  • The dance of code and culture
  • The morphing textuality across the cyber spaces we communicate within.

The idea to explore these themes in a conversational manner was born out of a deep  desire to connect to multitude of layers part of the concept: The intertextual animal.

Some of the  thought adventures you are more than welcome to embark on, together with me and my guests, will be:

          • Man-machine intelligence and what this has to do with the search for meaning (and, sorry, pizza)
          • Data-fed agents and curiosity-nurtured content writers
          • The poiesis of communities online and building of communication bridges
          • Intelligent content and the orchestration of user experiences
          • The importance of analogue threads  when it comes  to “digital”
          • The future of text and the “now” of connecting
        • The roots of intertwingularity in the past

Each conversation of the series will live on YouTube and in a post here, on this website, so you can subscribe to the RSS feed and follow the updates.
