Just found this interesting and incredibly well-done video on Vimeo. com about one man's life story told through facebook. It's funny, touching, fast-moving, somewhat less dimensional than a written biography (and certainly way more concise than even a short film), but also fascinating in what it says about how we convey and can convey our life stories. Check it out and share what you think. It's Here, created and posted by Maxleure, and pretty provocative in what it says about narrative, social networking, and the images, rhythms and storylines of our lives.
