what it's time for is up to you--

Friday, February 3


Austin Kleon has a new book coming out, Steal Like an Artist, in which he talks about the creative process in the digital age.  It also connects with the video, Everything is a Remix, a brief history of copyright in America.

Everything is a Remix Part 4 from Kirby Ferguson on Vimeo.

When I was asked to talk to students at a community college in upstate New York, I sat down and wrote a talk based on a list of 10 things I wished I’d heard when I was starting out:
  1. Steal like an artist.
  2. Don’t wait until you know who you are to get started.
  3. Write the book you want to read.
  4. Use your hands.
  5. Side projects and hobbies are important.
  6. The secret: do good work and share it with people.
  7. Geography is no longer our master.
  8. Be nice. (The world is a small town.)
  9. Be boring. (It’s the only way to get work done.)
  10. Creativity is subtraction.
