Tim Berners-Lee came back to TED to talk about how his previous call for data to be put online is beginning to come to fruition. In a brief 5min video he presents examples of how governments are making data available and others are able to use it and create mashup to make connection not otherwise identified.
Some work of Brendan Stone prompted a recollection in me about the remix manifesto by Brett Gaylor. In collaboration with others, some quite famous in these circles, the manifesto was put together and reads:
A Remixer’s Manifesto
- Culture always builds on the past.
- The past always tries to control the future.
- Our future is becoming less free.
- To build free societies you must limit the control of the past.
This video on the Boing Boing site introduces the basic principles.
