I came across a post on the “A Maverick Madness” blog about how everything is a remix. Nothing is original and it’s all been done before by someone else.  I was reminded of a post that I wanted to write about the same thing, only I first came up with the idea after seeing Chase Jarvis’s post on “How to Steal Like an Artist” based on the book “Steal Like An Artist” by Austin Kleon. See how inspiration and remixing works?! We see something that inspires us and we in turn take that “idea”, add to it or subtract from it to make it our own. It’s the way of the world.  According to the Bible “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”  See, we have permission to re-create what is already here to create new, better, and brighter ideas!

Here’s a video on the Elements of Creativity when “remixing”! It explains everything!

What are your thoughts on remixing and originality?
