Interactive Drama - A brief history (up to November last year)

Found a great summary of the history of online drama (2001 to November 2007!) on the link below.

From Digital Consultant:-

"Interactive drama – a brief history
Online interactive drama is a synthesis of broadcast drama, live role play, game play and interactive social media, relying heavily on a sense of user engagement, interactivity and playfulness. However, interactivity creates a dilemma of intellectual property - who ‘owns’ the content, therefore who can exploit and monetise it? Fan fiction - cultural fan production – especially creates added dilemmas. Harry Potter Puppet Pals, a totally unauthorised puppet response to the films and novels of JK Rowling, is gathering quite a following of its own thanks to bottom-up user platforms like YouTube."
