“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

1. I play act in my mind, in my sketches, in my physical play possibilities where structure doesn't only map against the frame of narrative, but the framework for how we process experiences. 2. The written words and pictures are crafted artifacts from which to evaluate realism of personas (characters); contexts (setting), ...
