Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Being Played Out Live On Twitter And Foursquare. Awesome.
Lovely: roleplaying Ferris Bueller not only on Twitter, but also on Foursquare. I love that Foursquare has a policy to allow "fake check-ins but not to reward them points"; there's lots of potential there, both playful and storyful.

Have videogames and reality TV given us 'narrative exhaustion', asks legendary screenwriter Paul Schrader | Film | The Guardian
"Storytelling began as ceremony and evolved into ritual. It was commercialised in the middle ages, became big business in the 19th century and an international industry in the 20th. Today it is the ubiquitous wallpaper of the postmodern era." I still think there's some separation of plot/narrative to be considered, you can't deny Schrader makes some sensible points.
