The dynamics of Storytelling were once clear to me; the Storyteller would bear the responsibility of Authoring and subsequently Telling a Story and so long as I actively Listened to it, the line was complete.
That all changed when interactivity was introduced: the neatly packaged, predefined sequence of events that was the Story, was now up for discussion: Who was its Author? Maybe both of us? Both being me and the person who wrote it, right? Who wrote.. what? A story or a system that generates them?
