    I agree that, in the entertainment world, we’re seeing the decline of original content. It’s adapted content, at best. And the continued rise of movie remakes, reality shows and short-lived sitcoms with rehashed plots proves that our creative-writing prowess is declining. But on the Web, I’m leaning slightly the other way. We live in a world of user-generated content, and the Web is an endless portal of new, authentic ideas and content. Just my opinion, though.

    “being inspired by great things, and combining/transforming them into something entirely new.”

    Even the greatest stories follow a formula that we’ve been using to tell stories since the dawn of man. What makes great stories great is that it uses a new point of view and takes readers/viewers on a different path. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel to make a good point but you do have to be willing to have your own approach to it.

    Good thoughts, Cory. I agree — we do see interesting things bubbling up from around the web. As a creator and content marketer I would love to see more of that.
