Open Source

a remixer's manifesto 1. culture always builds on the past. 2. the past always tries to control the future. 3. our future is becoming less free. 4. to build free societies you must limit the control of the past.


Open Source is both an ideology, and a tool. As a tool it can develop new products that can be bought and sold. People must be interested in an open source project to develop it. As an ideology it stimulates community. Open, or Free, culture is one that promotes the foundations for involvement, revisioning and criticality. Language is source/code, without free access to language, we would handicapped for generating new ideas and communication. Imagine if we had to pay a royalty for ever word, or catch-phrase, or meme that we utilized.

Communal, increases cultural wealth of ideas, develops modes of collaboration

Generative, Linear, progress driven development, Lateral, adaptive mutation

Aspects of my growing up that I believe have influenced my project.


Remixed Identity

Nintendo Generation

Video Games as social connector

Plug and play


Hip Hop
