In an age where algorithms are determining much of what we see, there’s a scramble to “reinvent” storytelling for a digital age. But taking the long view (and we mean a really long view), Upworthy’s Amy O’Leary will explore how the most fundamental mechanisms driving human curiosity can be found in ancient texts. We’ll teach you how to innovate today based on some the oldest playbooks known to humankind, by applying their user experience and feature sets to our modern, digital world.
