A very cool example of the so-called remix culture "happened to me" recently — one of the photos I posted on flickr was used as album art for a music CD, namely J. D. Warrick's "Going, a. The Leaving".
Btw., if you want to learn more about remix culture, Creative Commons etc. I can really recommend Larry Lessig's Wizards of OS 4 Keynote titled "The Read-Write Society" (OGG video: 144 MB, MP4 video: 224 MB).
This has several reasons:
Note: My photoblog will not die, I will continue posting new stuff there. I'll just use the flickr page for some selected shots.
There's an RSS feed for the flickr page, if you want track my photos.
Hm, more food for my video iPod which hasn't arrived yet.
Revver ("a Flickr for video") is a new video publishing community site which allows you to upload, share, watch, and tag videos for free. You need a special upload tool for uploading videos (there's a Windows version, a MacOS X version, and a Java version which probably works on Linux).
They intend to give the creators of the videos some money by attaching a clickable advertisement frame (the so-called RevTag™) at the end of each video. Everytime a viewer clicks the ad, the video creator gets some money. While this might be a great idea, it still leaves me with a strange feeling (the ad is not on a webpage, it's appended to the video itself!)...
Some noteworthy details:
A final quote from the blog post:
It’s a new game, we’re thrilled to be in it, and we tip our hats bigtime to the Ourmedia crew, the YouTube crew, the Participatory Culture crew, the Creative Commons crew, and all the other crews that came before us.
All in all this looks quite promising, and I'm curious how it will develp and grow...
