Joe Lambert, “Digital Storytelling: Capturing Lives, Creating Community”:

“Personal storytelling, in the forms of recitation and creative writing, had a renaissance in the 1990s. Educators, business people, creative designers, and community activists all found themselves drawn to the idea, as author and storytelling consultant Richard Stone (1994) has described it, of the ‘re-storification’ of our culture. Stone sees modern culture, and many of us would agree, as having clear-cut away our use of story as cultural glue. In traditional cultures, the intermingling of personal stories, communal stories, myths, legends and folktales not only entertained us, but created a powerful empathetic bond between ourselves and our communities. Like the environmental process where we are now attempting to recover the forests that were swept away by industrial logging methods, we are facing a painful but critical process to find ways to integrate story back into our lives.” (73)
