Thread name: re: re: re-era.

This does seem quite prevalent nowadays. But it is an old
"production" trick, one of the few ways to assure some level
of success to a project -- whatever that means -- is to
re-produce something that already was successful.

Collaborating or using CD-ROM samples, however, are a little bit
different -- maybe more of a necessity and less of a trick?

I suppose all depends on your goals, any of these can lead
to exploration and discovery.
