Hammer's Principles

Another interesting eNarrative issue was Jessica Hammer's proposal of Six Principles that describe a theory of interactive narrative:

  1. Shared Authorship
  2. Scripting The User
  3. Mental Schemata
  4. Open Choice
  5. Parallel Structure
  6. Community Values

These may not be quite right -- I suspect that what lies behind item 6 is not a community or a value -- but it's a place to start.
