2 Single Story 2011

What does it mean to have a 'single story' about a place or community?
It means to describe the life of that place or community. The way they live at that place, they ways the community is.

Describe a single story you have heard told about your community. What is missing from that story? How could people learn more about that community?
I have heard that people that live in the East Austin are least or middle class citizens. Everyone things that we don't care about school, that we are all bad and don't like doing anything, but the things that they are missing is that are parents do there hardest for us to have a home, food, and also are education. People would learn more about are community if they would live here for about a few years and see how things were going to change for them. Most of the population here is Mexicans and Africans. People assume we all do drugs or sell them just because of are community but they should experiment and see all the story's they have heard are not true.

Describe a single story you have heard about another community. How did you learn that story? How could you find out more about that community?
I have heard that the North of Austin is the best side of Austin to live at because it is mostly were all the people visit or shop at. They might say there is not a lot of drug dealing. I learned this story by people that live in there. I think I would find out more information if I would visit it more or maybe even move up there.

How could a game let players experience many stories about a place or community?
A game would tell the players facts and also it would show how daily bases of that place or community looks like. It might even be better then writting a new aticle because it would be more fun and people would be more interested in it.
