Abstract

Collaborative storytelling using user generated audio-visual narratives is becoming a popular medium for creative social sharing, hyper-local TV, and collective awareness. Through two storytelling user experiments, we recognized that the challenges around ethics and copyrights in managing user data are far more pressing than the simple technical feasibilities of a storytelling platform. Recognizing the importance of some actual and anticipated ethical problems we attempted to address the issue in our experiments using purpose-built technical features and a specifically designed consent form as the code of conduct. The resultant platform effectively maintains the life-cycle and dependencies of the narratives and composite user stories.
