My husband went out to his first fire call of the season (it's Spring here and the temps are really hotting up) so I needed to distract myself.  I came across "Inanimate Alice".  Anyone else seen this concept?   Inanimate Alice is transmedia - designed from the outset as a story that unfolds over time and on multiple platforms, aimed at late primary aged kids and upwards to develop literacy skills ... that said, it's also on the reading list for a first-year composition course at UC Berkeley.  I have to admit I've just spent an interesting hour or two exploring (reading? watching? playing?) each of the interactive stories and they were heaps of fun (if a bit edgy and dark - they all involve danger and suspense of some kind, so they're not for the littlies!).  I hadn't come across the concept before, but I was very impressed.

[Just got a call from my honey - he's back at the fire shed, safe and sound.  Be home once they've cleaned up and refilled the tanker.  I can breathe again.  :)]
