How Remix Culture Fuels Creativity & Invention: Kirby Ferguson at TED


Brain Pickings

by 

From Bob Dylan to Steve Jobs, or how copyright law came to hinder the very thing it set out to protect.

Remix culture is something I think about a great deal in the context ofcombinatorial creativity, and no one has done more to champion the popular understanding of remix as central to creativity than my friend and documentarian extraordinaire Kirby Ferguson. So I’m enormously proud of Kirby’s recent TED talk about his Everything is a Remix project, exploring remix culture, copyright and creativity — watch and take notes:

The Grey Album is a remix. It is new media created from old media. It was made using these three techniques: copy, transform and combine. It’s how you remix. You take existing songs, you chop them up, you transform the pieces, you combine them back together again, and you’ve got a new song, but that new song is clearly comprised of old songs.

But I think these aren’t just the components of remixing. I think these are the basic elements of all creativity. I think everything is a remix, and I think this is a better way to conceive of creativity.

e-commerce 5 consejos para crear una tienda online


Written by: Carlos Chen

goonlineMuchas personas están ansiosas de invertir todos sus ahorros comprando importaciones de algún producto para luego venderlas por internet o localmente. Pero esta es una movida muy riesgosa por dos razones.

  • Estas personas no han considerado todos los costos. Las enormes cantidades mínimas que tendrá que comprar para obtener los precios con descuento o los enormes costos del transporte.
  • Ellos tienen poca experiencia y no es posible que conozcan todas las transacciones en detalle.

La manera de minimizar cualquier tipo de error es comenzar muy pequeño. No inviertas tanto dinero en el inicio, aprende con artículos no costosos. Comienza con un mínimo de inversión; y pon el dinero en el negocio. Leer más “e-commerce 5 consejos para crear una tienda online”

TED believes that “the more you know, the more amazing the world seems.”  To this end, TED-Ed wants to work with the world’s best educators to share their best lessons.  Educators are invited to share their lesson ideas and TED will review the lessons, work with the educators to refine them, help them record their lessons, and pair them up with talented animators to create lessons worth sharing.

The channel went up today with twelve videos, including an intro to TED-Ed and eleven lessons.  Check out the intro video and a couple cool lessons below and let us know what you think.  I absolutely love this initiative and can’t wait to see what I learn from TED-Ed.  How about you?

TED: “If Advertising Is So Great, Why The Hell Is It Largely Failing On The Web?”

TED is inspiring advertisers to go above and beyond with their video marketing campaigns with the Ads Worth Spreading Challenge. The challenge, which was announced yesterday on the TED blog, is inviting advertisers to “reinvent, inspire and engage audiences” by redefining video advertising. In his Ad Week address, TED’s curator Chris Anderson said, “If advertising is so great, why the hell is it largely failing on the web today?” Advertisers—TED is asking you to prove Anderson wrong by submitting the best video marketing campaigns you can muster up!

Advertisers, brands and anyone else in the business community are invited to submit their inspirational, creative and amazing video ad campaigns by January 10, 2011. The ten best campaigns will be selected by a panel of judges (not yet announced) and will be premiered at TED2011 and will also appear on TED.com. That’s quite a way to start of an online video campaign, don’t you think?

It linked to an 18-minute video of MIT behavioral economist Dan Ariely talking about the bugs in our moral codes. Other friends have sent me videos of Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert on the spiritual dimension of creativity; rocker David Byrne on how venue architecture affects musical expression; and UC Berkeley professor Robert Full’s insights into how geckos’ feet stick to a wall.

Each of these emails is like a membership card into the club of “TED talk people.” I love being a member of this club. The videos give my discovery-seeking brain a little hit of dopamine in the middle of the workday. But just as important, each one I see or recommend makes me part of a group of millions of folks around the world who have checked out these videos.

TEDGLOBAL / WHERE IDEAS MEET & MATE

Fresh from Oxford, Contagious’ co-founder Paul Kemp-Robertson offers his perspective on the world’s most intense conference experience…

It’s not always easy being an Adland native in the crowd at a TED conference. If you haven’t saved the world or don’t own enough liquid capital to die trying, then the whoops that greeted this jibe from economist Tim Jackson can make you feel like a dumb jock who’s accidentally stumbled into the Chess Club Christmas party.

But maybe that’s just my insecurity and the nagging suspicion that my soul has been stress-fractured thanks to 20 years of commentating on the mechanics of mass consumption. When the biggest task you’ve recently completed is a speech on ‘advertising as a conversation’ and you’re suddenly surrounded by AIDS activists, women’s rights campaigners, MIT brainboxes and people who’ve spent their retirement fund building an eco-school in the middle of a jungle, it’s hard not to feel just a teeny bit marginalised and shallow. But then, I guess, such abrupt introspection is actually part of the value of TED. The compressed intellectual energy of the 18-minute speeches certainly dragged this editor out of his corporate cocoon and berated and beguiled him in equal measure.

Minority Report In Your Living Room: Gestural Interface Computers “Five Years” Away

oblong-logo.JPGIf you never saw Minority Report, then we can just tell you – when Tom Cruise uses a “computer” he looks more like a conductor of an orchestra, or maybe a DJ, than your average typist. As he browses through files, he swoops his arm dramatically in the air. He forcefully pushes useless information out of the way and manipulates video with swoops and twists of invisible dials.

If you’re anything like us, all you thought was “I can’t wait to play with that.” Well, your time is coming soon.

oblong-demo1-300.jpgThe New York Times’ Bits Blog reports that John Underkoffler, a science consultant for Minority Report, has worked for the last decade with his company, Oblong Industries, to take the gesture-activated interface from the screen to, well, the screen. Underkoffler unveiled the interface, called the g-speak Spatial Operating Environment, at Friday’s annual TED conference.

The interface has been tested for a number of applications, from virtual pottery-making at RISD, where you watch a user create a digital wire-frame pot as if using a spinning wheel, to the more intangible Tangible Media Group at MIT, where the g-stalt interface allows the user to “manipulate complex data sets with the hands”.

oblong-demo2-300.JPG“Starting today,” reads the Oblong website, “g-speak will fundamentally change the way people use machines at work, in the living room, in conference rooms, in vehicles.”

According to the article in the Times, this type of interface has already been in use in Fortune 50 companies, government agencies and universities, and it quotes Underkoffler as saying that “in five years’ time, when you buy a computer, you’ll get this”.

Several computer, PC and console makers are already getting ready to release gesture-based interfaces and consumers should start seeing them sometime within the next year, according to the Times.
