The Unwritten

from Scott Thill’s “The Unwritten Blurs Conspiracy, Lit Into Meaty Metafiction” at Wired

“Stories have real consequences in the world,” Gross said. “They are the driving force of human history – the word `history’ pretty much admits that for us – but they are losing their place in fiction and bleeding out into the `real’ world. Twenty-four-hour news and social networks, blogging and tweeting lead to a massive need for more paths of information, and the line between fact and fiction is giving in to the need for speed.”

The line between fact and fiction has been blurring since history was handed down orally, creating proxy experiences for those who were caught up in it or were never there. But memories have gotten shorter as media have gone critical-mass.
