Does storytelling change in context of new forms of media?

This is the title and central question of a great article in The Philadelphia Inquirer today, in which the writer Katie Haegele asks some well-considered questions of Sue Thomas from DMU, Scott Lloyd DeWitt (director of the digital media project at the Department of English at Ohio State University) and Robert Coover (a Professor of Literary Arts at Brown University):

…what about the writing experience? Is literary writing for digital media different in a way that matters?
…Does good, old-fashioned storytelling really change just because it is distributed in new forms of media?
