  title={RIN: A Declarative Specification for Interactive Narratives over Rich Media},
  author={Naren Datha and Joseph M. Joy and Eric J. Stollnitz},
Rich media technologies like streaming video, gigapixel panoramas, and terapixel maps are becoming broadly available on the Internet. Although rich media offer wonderful opportunities for creating experiences that have strong interactive and narrative elements, the ways in which users experience these media are widely disparate, involving a plethora of similar-yet-different web sites and mobile applications, each with its own proprietary rendering logic, data formats, and back-end services.
