Vera's definition of online drama is very broad and ranges from self-funded YouTube series and ARGs to sponsored dramas, adverts that use drama, apps, books, interactive theatre and even installations. There are contributions from the UK, Europe, USA, Korea, Japan and India. Most date from the pre-Netflicks era, when a new form of drama with a new business model seemed possible. The first featured series is from 2001, but most date from a rush of activity after the launch of YouTube in 2005. Blog posts delve further back in time to hypertext drama and explore sensory storytelling.
