Next, Adam Sinnreich teaches journalism and media studies at Rutgers. He's also the author of Mashed Up: Music, Technology, and the Rise of Configurable Culture. He talks with Anne Strainchamps about what he means by configurable culture.
Then, Steven Johnson is the author of several books including Mind Wide Open and The Invention of Air. His new one is Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation. Johnson tells Jim Fleming how he uses the coral reef as a metaphor for a creative environment throughout the book.
And finally, Ricardo Pitts-Wiley is the co-founder of the Mixed Magic Theatre Company. He also contributed to an essay called "Multiculturalism, Appropriation, and the New Media Literacies: Remixing Moby Dick." The essay appears in a book by Henry Jenkins called Mashup Cultures and focuses on the contemporary re-staging of Melville's classic novel. Ricardo Pitts-Wiley tells Anne Strainchamps about his project and how it emerged from work he did with incarcerated youth at the Rhode Island Training Facility. And we hear a bit of the production.
