The storytelling site Broadcastr won the “Most Attractive for Investment” audience award at the inaugural Next Big Thing event at The Paley Center for Media last week.
Electric Literature c0-founders Andy Hunter and Scott Lindenbaum introduced Broadcastr at the eBook Summit last year, a storytelling app that will let people record audio versions of location-specific stories around the globe–like Foursquare for storytellers. Above, we’ve embedded a video of the presentation.
Here’s more from Lindenbaum from the release (embedded below): “We were excited to discuss ideas with other start-ups and leaders in the field … The start-up space is competitive, like snowboarding, and you want to be successful. But it’s also about seeing what’s possible, and advancing the community as a whole.”
