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.

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.

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?
