quote of the day
Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power to that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared.
J.K. Rowling
rant n' rave

REDEF makes your mind move. Read, watch and listen to the stories, people and ideas that matter. We DJ the internet and deliver daily mixes of fresh ideas. We search each day to find different angles and points of view that lead to deeper understanding. Industry insights, great stories, big thinking, and pop culture. Stay competitive. Challenge what you think you know and are interested in. Learn something new each day. When I was a child, my mother told me to always ask "why?" when I didn't understand something. It was a directive she slightly regretted towards the end of her life. Early on, she took me to museums and films. We read newspapers and discussed articles, watched the same tv shows and debated afterward, sparking in me an endless curiosity that was only satiated by the emergence of the internet - a place I could search and browse endlessly, learn at my own pace and enter into discussions about ideas. These moments with my mother, and others like them, inspired me to create REDEF. We create interest remixes for curious minds. An interest remix is a curated information stream with a specific industry focus wrapped with pop culture nuggets. We're not too interested in the fact that something happened, but we're super interested in what it means, how it affects us, and different perspectives on the topic. This is not a daily news site or newsletter, nor is it an algorithmic discovery engine. We hand-pick everything you see on REDEF. We utilize technology to hunt and gather, but our editorial decisions are our own. The internet is infinite, full of more mind-expanding content than one could ever hope to absorb; we're here to help narrow it down. Follow our mixes in media, music and coming back soon: fashion, sports, and tech. My friend and IAC and EXPEDIA chairman BARRY DILLER once said: "We're in a world now where it's not enough to be smart. You have to be curious." REDEF is about curiosity. Helping you be more informed so you can take ideas with you. Apply them at work. Share them with your friends and colleagues. Have lively, useful, and positive discussions about them. It's not enough to be smart, you have to be curious. Enjoy and subscribe. Learn more about REDEF and me... Happy Birthday to GERALDINE LAYBOURNE, DOUGLAS KANNER, JONATHAN KATZMAN, ADAM DORSKY, ALEX ZHARDANOVSKY, JAMIE ROBERTS, and ANDI POCH.
