Have you seen "Welcome to Pine Point?"


My oldest daughter, Annette, and I have regular discussions about how to present materials we find of interest to our various audiences, whether family history (real or fictional), quirky stories, transmedia projects, or - one of her best - Flat Stanley adventures for children. We have talked about telling the story of a town we come across in our historical readings, perhaps where an ancestor lived.

I just heard about the 'Pine Point Project' - check it out, and see what you think? Does it remind you of any of your family history research? How do you think 'the Goggles' did on this project? I found it fascinating... especially when I see they started to make it a book, and instead it became something else!  ;-)

Thanks to Dan Curtis for bringing Pine Point to my attention.


Families are Forever!  ;-)

  1. Wonderful question, Bill.
    I enjoyed both the video and the interview with its creators. I borrowed both for a blog post on our Stories to Tell Books Blog "Interactive Narrative: New Tool in Storytelling" Thanks!
