I don’t plan to reproduce unoriginal content on this blog very often, but if you haven’t seen this yet, you should take a moment to do so. This video series sets out to demonstrate how interconnected our creations are and how much we rely on the work of those who came before us (even if we’re not humble enough to recognize it).
The first video is about music, the second is about film, and the third is about creativity and innovation in technology. A fourth is in the works, and I believe it’ll be about the legal issues surrounding creativity.
If you don’t have time for all three, skip the first. And don’t stop when the credits hit – there’s more!
Update: Part 4 is up!
