Personal digital technologies have become the tools of reproduction for personal narration and dissemination of broader cultural commentary. Mobile social media enables individuals to function as self-promoters and public commentators, with practices that offer a personal and often very explicit engagement between the self and technology. Narrative dissemi-nation can also make a contribution to a larger collective memory or mood, speaking back to aspects of culture at large. Communications become entangled and imbued with social currency as they are referenced, added to, and disseminated on multiple channels. These hybrid activities suggest an important relational interaction that is attentive to participant’s identi-ties, to their presentation of themselves, and to where they are located in virtual and physical space. This collaborative effort between narrators and participants and their locales adds complexity to personal stories and ties them to places and communities of practice.
