Remix has many meaning relating to media and technology. Even Thimble includes a Remix button as a way to get started with web page development. The “Open” movement encourages everyone to Reuse, Redistribute and Remix. Remix usually starts by making a copy of the original and creating something new – subject to Creative Commons licensing. How similar it is to the original is up to the remixer and their ideas.

A remix is a piece of media which has been altered from its original state by adding, removing, and/or changing pieces of the item. A song, piece of artwork, book, video, or photograph can all be remixes. The only characteristic of a remix is that it appropriates and changes other materials to create something new.
