Short video on Transmedia for quick intro:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transmedia_storytelling
In Transmedia storytelling, content becomes invasive and permeates fully the audience's lifestyle. A transmedia project develops storytelling across multiple forms of media in order to have different "entry points" in the story; entry-points with a unique and independent lifespan but with a definite role in the big narrative scheme.

Roundtable discussions: Josh Woodlander will be discussing his research on CRMs (Customer Relationship Management). If time, others can bring up topics they want to discuss.
