Creativity isn’t magic. It starts out simply enough — you’re copying and then you’re fiddling with whatever you’ve copied, and then you’re merging whatever you copied with something else. It’s only over time, with years of practice, that you start to get results that are breakthrough.

Kirby Ferguson, creator of “Everything is a Remix,” quoted in a CNN piece on DJ Spooky (Kirby and I are hosting a panel at SXSW this March)
