“Steal” Like an Artist

Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different. — T.S. Eliot

Good News of the Day:
“Austin Kleon is positively one of the most interesting people on the Internet. His Newspaper Blackout project is essentially a postmodern florilegium, using a black Sharpie to make art and poetry by redacting newspaper articles. In this excellent talk from The Economist’s Human Potential Summit, titled ‘Steal Like an Artist,’ Kleon makes an articulate and compelling case for combinatorial creativity and the role of remix in the idea economy.” Cultural Curator Maria Popova shares his 8-minute talk and her perspective on it.

Be The Change:
Remix some ideas today, transforming someone else’s contributions into new value.
