An MIT Media Lab concept gives storytellers new ways to structure context with “curated tangents”
Designers and researchers Alexis Hope and Kevin Hu created a project to pack more context and background into a news report with a new platform called FOLD. It offers readers “curated tangents” that provide context. Readers can scroll vertically to read the narrative and side-to-side to access these context blocks that contain explanations and further information. FOLD ensures the reader can get into the story without having to break away for definitions or explanations.
