Recently I had been nursing two ideas that I thought were really unique / interesting: In my June links post, I included this bullet: “SKAM the radical teen drama that unfolds one post at a time: can’t believe it’s taken this long for people to really experiment with incorporating social into “tv shows” / entertainment.” […]
