Fans and others interested in remix culture might want to check out this event: Lawrence Lessig + Shepard Fairey + Steven Johnson speaking at the New York Public library on Thursday, February 26, 2009. Tickets will probably sell out fast, as we’re not the only ones who love these guys.
We do however note with some disappointment, in the direction of WIRED and the NYPL, that–as great as these guys are, they’re all guys. In fact, they’re all white guys. Considering the idea here is that we’re going to be “guided” through “emerging remix culture”, and considering how much of remix culture came out of–not only fandom, but hip hop and sampling–it’s problematic that there are no women or people of color on the program.
