Everything is a Remix

There are some excellent ideas on creativity here.  The idea is expressed in a fairly extreme way but it is well researched and a compelling argument. 

Copying IS good. 

I particularly like the idea (from Henry Ford) that there comes a point in time where an invention (or discovery) WILL happen, before this time the invention is impossible, after this time it is inevitable.  Or another by Isaac Newton “If I have seen further then it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants” (itself an adapted quote).

It really makes me wonder about how to TEACH creativity?

Before you watch – answer this “Who made the first modern computer?”
