“Our creativity comes from without, not from within.”

Kirby Ferguson speaking at TED on the topic of remixing:

Our creativity comes from without, not from within. We are not self-made. We are dependent on one another, and admitting this to ourselves isn’t an embrace of mediocrity and derivativeness. It’s a liberation from our misconceptions, and it’s an incentive to not expect so much from ourselves and to simply begin.

This is the same topic I’ll be speaking on — creativity and remixing existing matter — at ConvergeFL in Tallahassee, Florida (October 4–5).
