Everything is a Remix, the ideas episodeJun 21 2011

The third episode of Kirby Ferguson's excellent Everything is a Remix has been posted. The first episode was about music, the second dealt with movies, and the third is on technological innovation.

"I invented nothing new. I simply assembled the discoveries of other men behind whom were centuries of work. Had I worked fifty or ten or even five years before, I would have failed. So it is with every new thing. Progress happens when all the factors that make for it are ready and then it is inevitable. To teach that a comparatively few men are responsible for the greatest forward steps of mankind is the worst sort of nonsense." -- Henry Ford

FYI: the credits are actually in the middle of the video...there's another few minutes of material after they run.
