Our culture no longer bothers to use words like appropriation or borrowing to
describe those very activities. Today's audience isn't listening at all - it's
participating. Indeed, audience is as antique a term as record, the one
archaically passive, the other archaically physical. The record, not the remix,
is the anomaly today. The remix is the very nature of the digital.
-- William Gibson
