Just like You Suck At Photoshop, The Website is Down by Josh Weinburg is using a new format that I will call The Screencast Narrative. The Screencast Narrative tells a story using what appears to be a screen cast of one of the characters' computer monitors. We never get to see the guy at the computer just what he sees on his screen.
Josh seems to have taken things a little further with The Website is Down in that he uses some webcams to show a web hosting technician at a server farm rebooting a web server. Other than that the story is played out with Halo screencasts, and Skype and email pop ups.
Screencast Narratives are a great cost effective way to tell a story without using a camera.
