2 Single Story 2011

"Danger of a single story"

  1. What does it mean to have a 'single story' about a place or community? It means to be prejudice about anything.
  2. Describe a single story you have heard told about your community. What is missing from that story? How could people learn more about that community?That we are all cowboys. What they are missing is the Imax theater and all of the good schools for game designers.
  3. Describe a single story you have heard about another community. How did you learn that story? How could you find out more about that community?I have heard about how "all 3rd World countrie's are poor" or all people in asia knows kung-fu. I could probably visit one to see how their everyday life is.

4. How could a game let players experience many stories about a place or community?

By putting you in their shoes in everyday life situations and seeing just how different they are.
