The Ecstasy of Repurposing

From Open Source, about an impending show:

We canít stop talking about Jonathan Lethemís essay in this monthís Harperís. If you havenít read it, you really should. Nothing that follows in this post will be nearly as interesting. Go ahead. And this post will still be here when you return. You know you want to.
Those of us fascinated by the cultural phenomenon (and the practical process) of mashups and the general subject of repurposing will be especially interested in both the essay and the forthcoming podcast.

Wonderful, excellent. As Umberto Eco reminds us in "The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana" 'repurposing' doesn't just happen in art but is fundamental to constructing our selves.
