Another example of Read/Write Culture?

In a previous post, I reflected on Larry's Lessig's talk at TED on Read/Write culture. He gave three examples of what people are creating. The second one being a very disturbing video of a Jesus character.

Scott Adams, of Dilbert fame, challenged readers to come up with nonsense lyrics according to some rules in a recent post. Readers responded. Then a band created the song. Then it was posted to a popular video sharing site with images added. Much of this is likely illegal, but I do think it is illustrative of what Lessig was trying to get across. Think about the various literacies involved in the production of the work and the collaboration that was involved and the fun that the various players had.
