We Tell Stories

I’m helping to judge sites for the 2009 SXSW Interactive Web Awards. It’s been pretty fun so far. Today I came across a cool site that combines 2 things I love — literature and technology. Penguin Books’ We Tell Stories re-imagines 6 classic stories as modern mashups. The 21 Steps tells its narrative across Google Maps. Fairy Tales is part Madlib, part Choose Your Own Adventure. Each story makes clever use of technology in its own clever and appropriate way.  Good stuff.
