“The Elements of Creativity” focuses on how copying and remix were essential elements in the development of the personal computer and the world wide web. Ferguson posted the video on Universal Subtitles so that his fans could help his message go global. By creating subtitles for the video, these fans become co-collaborators, spreading the word and making it ripe for the next wave of creativity to build upon. The ten minute video is now available in Spanish, French, Portuguese, Turkish, Dutch, German, Italian and Danish, with more on the way. You can help translate too!
