Is a minute enough to tell a story? You are not allowed to cheat. You have to come up with it on the spot. Can you? If you can’t, you can ask a French kiosk for one and you’re saved. Yes. What’s this French kiosk? Let’s find out!
Entrepreneur Christophe Sibieude is the “author” responsible for Short Edition, a French “community publisher” that has users of its smartphone app trading stories that they themselves write and consume. Instead of writing them on your blog and sharing them with your friends, now you can share them with anyone using the app. They can be stories about anything, that you write on the spot, while waiting for the train, the bus or the love of your life…who knows. The Short Edition community is open to all, “male, female, old, young, blond, bald…” you got the idea. In four years since its debut, it has attracted some 140, 000 members.
