remixing and recreativity

I absolutely love Lessig’s discussion on (re)creativity because yes, remixes are still creative and can take so much time and effort to make and can be as equally amusing as content not based on something else. It was interesting how Lessig referred to the remixing trend as something “your kids” were doing, I can understand he was referring to the younger generation and how it is a relatively recent trend, but that doesn’t mean other generations cannot enjoy the same content.  As Ferguson highlighted in his own video, remixing goes way, way back. It’s amazing to see new content come stem from already existing content, and still be entertaining and refreshing.
