Remixing Life As We Like It

Don’t like real life around you? Increasingly, we can remix it to our own liking. “We’re remixing our TV behavior as TiVo-style video recorders let us ‘make every night Thursday night.’ We’re remixing our media by grabbing online articles from dozens of different sources—and then broadcasting our own opinions with blogs. When you get down to it, the remixing metaphor applies to almost any area you can think of. Some of the sessions at ETech bannered the remixing of radio, DNA, politics and culture.”
