The Infinite Canvas Reloaded: Digital Storytelling, Webcomics, and Web 2.0

The slides for the presentation that I gave at the 2009 NMC Summer Conference are now online. Here’s the original session description:

In 2000, Scott McCloud created the concept of the “infinite canvas,” a radical re-envisioning of the narrative possibilities opened up for comics by their transition from the printed page to the computer screen. Now, his vision is finally coming to fruition, enabled by new technologies and Web 2.0 tools. This session will examine how the new comics transform digital storytelling, the tools needed, and how to put the results to good use in academia.

My thanks to everyone who participated in this session — I really enjoyed the conversations that followed it.
