If you enjoyed the anti-SOPA video we had posted yesterday, you’ll want to check out Kirby Ferguson’s (the creator of yesterday’s video) primary work. Everything is a Remix is a four-part series Mr. Ferguson has been working on over the past few years. Exploring the derivative nature of every aspect of our culture (music, film, literature, technology), and covering a broad swath of topics (did you know, for instance, that before Microsoft stole the idea of a desktop operating system from Apple, Apple had stolen the same idea from Xerox?), the series is incredibly entertaining and informative. Part One covers music, Part two deals with film, and Part Three delves in technological innovation. Part Four is due to be released on his website sometime this month.
Kirby Ferguson is a New York based filmmaker and has spoken on the subject of these videos at “Google, Netflix, the GEL Conference, Creative Mornings NYC, The Cusp Conference, Media Evolution, The Creators Project, Campus Party Mexico City, Columbia University, NYU and more”
