communications and storytelling traditions? What is social media
doing to our culture?

Dahlby, now a faculty member at the University of Texas in
Austin, says he is fascinated by the digital revolution. “Among
other things, I’ll discuss an intriguing recent experiment that
used Twitter as a storytelling device. I’ll try to show just how
quickly things move in digital storytelling.”

primarily as a journalist in international affairs. He lived in
Asia for 13 years and served as Tokyo bureau chief for the
Washington Post and Newsweek. He also was managing editor of
