WEEKEND ROUND-UP: IRA GLASS ON CREATIVE WORK, AND STORYTREE



IRA GLASS ON CREATIVE WORK: Here's a neat little message from Ira Glass about slogging through any sort of creative work, such as the storytelling he does on This American Life. Ira's words are animated in this video by David Shiyang Liu.



STORYTREE: Storytree ("Remember the time") is a new website that enables users to upload and share family stories on video, in response to such questions as "How did you meet mom?" or "What was it like when you had your first grandchild?" I love the concept -- it's a family tree where the leaves are more than just names and dates, but stories.
