Dean's Garage Band

Dean Goes Nuts

Amazing. "Media Remix". Thousands of people - the above being a small sample - have taken to sampling Dean's Iowa Caucus Concession Speech and making remixes.

The power of public domain source materials and easy to use music software is starting to flex it's muscle. With advent of Apple's "Garage Band" I suspect we will see much more of this from now on, and not just in the political sphere.

Interestingly, The Deansters already tapped into the image-based parody/remix phenomenon with their Postcard generator.

Ohh, I have an idea...
