"Computers are good at consuming, producing and processing data. Humans, on the other hand, process the world through narratives. Thus, in order for data, and the computations that process and visualize that data, to be useful for humans, they must be embedded into a narrative - a computational narrative - that tells a story for a particular audience and context.

- Second, these computational narratives need to be reproducible.
- Third, computational narratives are created in collaboration.“ (Perez and Granger 2015,
