“Good narrative is the essential tool.”

How it all fits together

Is this a great sentence or what?

Good narrative is the essential tool in a world drowning in data points and content.

It comes via yesterday’s “Immersed in ‘The Art of Immersion’” post at Inside Higher Ed’s Technology and Learning blog.

It’s the most succinct way of thinking about everything web that I’ve come across. I am stymied by the implied responsibility of having a blog (two, actually), a Twitter account, a Facebook account, a Flickr account, a Posterous account, and on and on. But I should know, and remember, that almost all of life is about how humans try to understand by imposing a story on what happens to us, and making stories out of our lives.

Tell your story.
