“ Remix Culture. Is It Friend or Foe?” By: David Lindmann
Remix Culture is reusing the tools that we have used in the past to create new and more efficient ways.
What is Remix Culture?
Free software has given us the ability to remix songs which is important to everyone, not just professionals.
The Right To Remix
There is a free culture movement and its growing with software. Its creating Creative Commons.
We have Remix Reading which is letting artiest share work and ultimately “remix” each other.
Without remix we are not humans and can not interact with the external world.

Shepard Fairey Remix is all about making references; references are how you establish a point of view in popular culture, and they are crucial to my work as an artist.
If we take away remix then we will make pirates of our children. We can not kill this form of expression only criminalize it. Can’t make Remixers passive but we can make them pirates.
Is Remix needed?
What Purpose does it have?
Remix is needed due to its popular culture view points. Steven Johnson “Where do we think innovation and creativity come from-protecting ideas or setting them free, allowing them to circulate freely?” Meaning we remix everyday with no thought “Just Do It”.
