Remix culture

Remix culture
Remix culture, sometimes read-write culture, is a society that allows and encourages derivative works by combining or editing existing materials to produce a new creative work or product.[2][3] A remix culture would be, by default, permissive of efforts to improve upon, change, integrate, or otherwise remix the work of copyright holders. While a common practice of artists of all domains throughout human history,[4] the growth of exclusive copyright restrictions in the last several decades limits this practice more and more by the legal chilling effect.[5] As reaction Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig, who considers remixing a desirable concept for human creativity, works since the early 2000s[6][7] on a transfer of the remixing concept into the digital age. Lessig founded the Creative Commons in 2001 which released Licenses as tools to enable remix culture again, as remixing is legally prevented by the default exclusive copyright regime applied currently on intellectual property.

Video Curator - What is Video Curation? Definition: A video curator has a knack for finding the gems in mountain of online video. Video curators watch hundreds of videos, gather the best video in playlists on YouTube or another website, and distributes the channel to a network of fans. The best video curators have a keen interest in the subjects that their video channels cover. You'll find video curation channels focused on everything from skateboarding to kittens, fast cars to knitting. Becoming a video curator is simple. If you want more control over your video curation channel, create a video blog. Examples: The video curator set up a YouTube channel featuring the funniest puppy videos she could find.

Remixing as a Classroom Strategy 7.7.10 | When it comes to innovations in education, Doug Sery, an acquisitions editor at MIT Press in the new media, game studies and design group, has a simple request: “more remix technologies.” “[Remixing teaches] systems thinking; connecting ideas, information and experience, as well as collaboration,” Sery says. “In the 21st-century economy, those are the skills you will need to survive.” But what is remixing and how does it apply to learning? Remixing first gained widespread attention in the hip-hop world. Today, in the ever-expanding world of what can be done with a laptop, the definition of remixing has expanded to include not only music, but also software, film, games and any other media. “It was taking songs, splicing them together and making different creations,” says Sery. And now, remixing is finding its way into the classroom as a way of fostering students’ creativity and helping them learn and express their ideas. But Is It Plagiarism? Teaching 21st-Century Skills

Remix (book) 2008 book by Lawrence Lessig Lessig outlines two cultures - the read-only culture (RO) and the read/write culture (RW). The RO culture is the culture we consume more or less passively. Digital technology, however, does not have the 'natural' constraints of the analog that preceded it. As opposed to RO culture, Read/Write culture has a reciprocal relationship between the producer and the consumer. Lessig posits that digital technologies provide the tools for reviving RW culture and democratizing production. The Internet and Commons The internet is essentially the hub for this type of economy. Free Software Remixing is this software's very nature. YouTube's growing issue in copyright claims With growing frequency, YouTube has begun copyright striking, and taking down videos that appear to have claimed content in them in any way. To that Lessig's rebuttal is that the work made on such platforms should be free of legal ownership aside from its originator. Books portal

Curation Is Not Cheap Content... Posted by Tom Foremski - May 16, 2011 There seems to be quite a few people in marketing that look upon "curation" as an inexpensive and quick way to get content onto a site. After all, how hard can it be to collect a few links and publish them? However, "cheap" content doesn't mean it's good content. For curation to be done well it needs context. If you take a look at the work of museum curators, for example, the fantastic Balenciaga and Spain currently at the DeYoung in San Francisco, you see a tremendous amount of context around each exhibit. That's what curation online also has to demonstrate: mastery, passion, knowledge, and expertise. Otherwise, you could simply create curated content via some filters, some keywords, etc. I've written about this distinction before, aggregators versus curators and it is worth repeating because it is the human labor that's important, that's where the value will be found in any online enterprise.

Remixing Education for the 21st Century 7.7.10 | Doug Sery sees the future of education cross his desk as senior acquisitions editor for the new media, game studies and design group at MIT Press. When asked what innovation he’d like to see in the classroom, he said more remixing—the kind of creative experimentation young people do on their own by sampling music, splicing it into their own photos, or clipping excerpts from historical footage and adding it to a rap or spoken word. Not exactly something you’d expect a traditional publisher to condone. But could it be a learning tool that engages kids where they’re at? This Behind the Research looks more closely at remixing as a tool for learning and discovers some interesting experiments going on, in and out of the classroom: Darrell Johnson, a Chicago public school teacher, discusses how remixing engages students in ways that prepare them for the future and why remixing is not plagiarism.Watch examples of remix projects from Chicago students at Carter G.

Culture libre Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La culture libre est un mouvement social qui promeut la liberté de distribuer et de modifier des œuvres de l'esprit sous la forme d'œuvres libres[1] par l'utilisation d'internet ou d'autres formes de médias. Le mouvement de la culture libre puise sa philosophie de celle du logiciel libre en l'appliquant à la culture, dans des domaines aussi variés que l'art, l'éducation, la science, etc[2]. Les mécanismes juridiques des licences libres attachées à la culture sont également inspirés du logiciel libre ; l'utilisation des licences art libre ou Creative Commons a ainsi permis l'émergence de la musique libre et de l'art libre. La culture libre défend notamment l'idée que les droits d'auteurs ne doivent pas porter atteinte aux libertés fondamentales du public.

Content Curation Vs Content Aggregation Two posts brought to my attention the discussion starting to take root about the worlds of content aggregation versus content curation. A post on the Poynter blog back in early October points to the work of journalists engaging in curation via Twitter as a way of “filtering the signal from the noise.” The phrase used was “curation is the new aggregation.” A more recent post on the blog by Roger Hart delves more into the world of content curation in a broader sense, stating that it is a bit of a flavor-of-the-month. My experience with curation is more specific. Daily, and sometimes twice daily, it is my job to draw from a set pool of content, radio programs’ arts and entertainment segments, and publish them into a CMS with text and audio. Over the past few years, publishing content in this manner makes me a curator of sorts. Curation goes one step beyond aggregation by adding an active, ongoing editorial component. Curation and aggregation are similar in but a few ways. So.

Remixing and Education Creative Commons Organization creating copyright licenses for the public release of creative works Creative Commons (CC) is an American non-profit organization and international network devoted to educational access and expanding the range of creative works available for others to build upon legally and to share.[3] The organization has released several copyright licenses, known as Creative Commons licenses, free of charge to the public. These licenses allow authors of creative works to communicate which rights they reserve and which rights they waive for the benefit of recipients or other creators. An easy-to-understand one-page explanation of rights, with associated visual symbols, explains the specifics of each Creative Commons license. The organization was founded in 2001 by Lawrence Lessig, Hal Abelson, and Eric Eldred[4] with the support of Center for the Public Domain. In 2002, the Open Content Project, a 1998 precursor project by David A. Purpose and goal[edit] Creative Commons network[edit]

The 3 C’s of Information Commerce: Consumption, Curation, Creation inShare180 Over the years, social networks have lured us from the confines of our existing realities into a new genre of digital domains that not only captivated us, but fostered the creation of new realities. As George Bernard Shaw observed, “Life is not about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself.” Such is true for social networks and the digital persona and resulting experiences we create and cultivate. It was the beginning of the shift in behavior toward an era of digital extroversion, self-defined by varying degrees of sharing, connections, and engagement. On Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, et al., we were attracted by the promise of reigniting forgotten relationships and enamored by the sparking of new connections. With each new connection we wove, we were compelled to share details about ourselves that we might not have divulged in real life. Our concerns of privacy or the lack thereof, now require education.
