We are huge fan of the Everything is a Remix project by Kirby Ferguson but with the busy semester completely missed the release of part 4, System Failure. So if you haven’t seen it yet check it out.
This blog post is long but is a wonderful read. It’s full of great ideas and it made me smile just reading it. Lots of the concepts can be applied to media projects but really they are just some good guidelines to follow in your life. One of my favorite takeaways was learning of a great quote from Kurt Vonnegut. He is one of my favorite authors and these are some words to live by.
“Kurt Vonnegut said it best: “There’s only one rule I know of: goddamn it, you’ve got to be kind.”
Reading this post brightened up my Monday and I hope you feel the same way when you read (or at least skim over) it. Here are a few of the main points, I won’t give them all to you because you need to go read it for yourself!
Working with media much of what is done is remixing this video series does an excellent job describing the remix and provides an excellent example.
This is a 4 part series and we will post additional videos as they are released.
