REM: First post

Thus starts the beginnings of a new subject: Remix Culture. Remix is everywhere and frankly, almost everything is at least part remixed. We learn from other people’s discoveries and inventions and all creation requires influence.

The type of remix that this class mainly talks about can be traced back to 1950’s Jamaica. The people decided to live without copyright, so made music and art using each other’s material and it was beautiful and fun. If only the rest of the world was this chill. Half of what we make this semester will probably not even be legal but regardless I look forward to it. The class blog is here.
