NYPL Remix: Steven Johnson, Lawrence Lessig and Shepard Fairey



Fora TV
- look for the partner tab
I have spent a bit of time this weekend looking though the archive and current offerings of Fora TV. The trick is to click on the partner tab - and then trawl through the A/Z list looking at the organizations who are running a channel there.

I know - a bit time consuming, but as I noted on Twitter earlier today, sometimes, you just got to do the time to get the gems.
New York Public Library
One of the partners is the NYPL, New York Public Library. The embed is of one of their opening sessions this year. There are a whole bunch of others here. The one featured here is on ReMix culture.

Remix: Steven Johnson, Lawrence Lessig and Shepard Fairey

<<<< "What is the future for art and ideas in an age when practically anything can be copied, pasted, downloaded, sampled, and re-imagined? Live from the NYPL and WIRED Magazine kick off the Spring 2009 season with a spirited discussion of the emerging remix culture. Our guides through this new world--who will take us from Jefferson's Bible to Andre the Giant to Wikipedia--will be Lawrence Lessig, author of Remix, founder of Creative Commons, and one of the leading legal scholars on intellectual property issues in the Internet age; acclaimed street artist Shepard Fairey, whose iconic Obama "HOPE" poster was recently acquired by the National Portrait Gallery; and cultural historian Steven Johnson, whose new book, The Invention of Air, argues that remix culture has deep roots in the Enlightenment and among the American founding fathers. >>> "

Speakers:
