Stories in your pocket:
Web of Stories (webofstories.com) began as an archive of video recordings of many of the greatest scientists of our time telling their life stories. As the number of speakers and stories grew, a web of related stories formed. After a while, we also started to invite famous people outside the field of science to tell their life stories.
Now, some of these videos can be viewed on your iPhone thanks to a new Web of Stories app that allows you to watch, download and share some of the fascinating stories which we have recorded.
In this app, the American comic book writer and media producer Stan Lee tells his life story. Lee brought us 'Spider Man', 'X-Men' and 'The Hulk', which were universally loved by readers everywhere. Marvel Comics, with Lee at the helm, went on to become hugely successful. In 2010 the Stan Lee Foundation was founded to focus on literacy, education and the arts. In January 2011, Lee received the 2428th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Browsing and saving favourite stories by Stan Lee to your iPhone is easy – you can, in effect, keep his life story in your pocket! You can also share these videos on social media and via e-mail. It couldn’t be simpler!
Our website, www.webofstories.com, has other notable speakers from different walks of life with iPhone apps currently available for five other speakers. Our aim is to satisfy the need we believe people have to listen to engaging stories. The great Argentinian writer Borges said, “Comment is dead before the ink is dry, but a story lives forever”. So you can blame Borges for Web of Stories!
