Today, an endless, recombinant, and fundamentally social process generates
countless hours of creative product (another antique term?). To say that this
poses a threat to the record industry is simply comic. The record industry,
though it may not know it yet, has gone the way of the record. Instead, the
recombinant (the bootleg, the remix, the mash-up) has become the characteristic
pivot at the turn of our two centuries.
