Malcolm Gladwell is a writer for The New Yorker and best-selling author of such books as The Tipping Point, Blink and Outliners. In a recent article in The New Yorker, “Creation Myth,” writes about one of his ongoing themes, how ideas are interconnected and resulting products are remixes (copies) of earlier ideas. In a posting on yesterday’s, Blinda Lanks writes about Gladwell’s article and a video by Kirby Ferguson, “Everything Is a Remix.” The third in a four-part series, which explores appropriation throughout culture — the use of borrowed elements in the creation of a new work.
