What are all of the terms and genre defying categories which are emerging – a few I’ve collected and researched:
Digital Story – a generic term for stories produced and shared by digital means. It tends to include image and audio, not just a word processed version of the story.
Transmedia – Stories which cross genre, medium, and type. For example a television show which has some of the plot developments play out on a website, or in a game. The term was described by Jenkins (2003) in his work Transmedia Storytelling who looked from the perspective of Hollywood and the media and how they can build a depth of character development and use it as a marketing opportunity to build a franchise.

I am looking forward to seeing posts pop up in my reader.
