Remix and Links

Following on the Network Cultures class discussion of remix yesterday, here is a link to a documentary about remix called Remix Manifesto. Some examples of remix as social commentary can be found here and here. Some examples of transformative storytelling can be found here and here. MIA‘s remix makes us ask what is being remixed, as does Bey’s Formation. Read more about all the “referents” in Formation here.

Remix, as we discussed, is often (although arguably not always) dependent on understanding the referent. So, what happens when our online, networked, communities become excessively insular? Ethan Zuckerman explores this, and possible solutions, here.
