On Creative "Originality"
This video is really dumb before it gets really smart about where creative "originality" comes from. It's two guys providing voice-over commentary to a lengthy presentation for their ad services, explaining that good "creatives" don't cannibalize or merely copy ideas from other ads -- they cannibalize stuff from farther afield, and when they copy ideas, they also tweak/improve upon them. Refreshingly honest. Foucault, Derrida, and the Creative Commons folk would approve. (Thanks, Hylton!)
Update: Speaking of creativity and orginality, Kembrew McLeod is holding a very cool conference February 25th at the University of Iowa College of Law exploring the theme. It features Siva and Science Commons ED John Wilbanks, among others. Excellent.
