Historians of technology often cite Bush’s essay as the conceptual forerunner of the Web. And hypertext pioneers like Douglas Engelbart, Ted Nelson, and Tim Berners-Lee have all acknowledged their debt to Bush’s vision. But for all his lasting influence, Bush was not the first person to imagine something like the Web.
If you’ve tried listening to any of your old CDs lately, if you even own them anymore, you may have noticed they won’t play. That’s what happened to mine, anyway.
The last time I played through *all* of my CDs (1500) I found about 10 with unplayable parts, and 2 that were completely unusable.
One of the “damaged” CDs was actually harmed by the marker used to put info on it – the part where the ink was had become completely transparent.

In Manhattan this spring, crews are ramping up work on Hudson Yards, the largest private development in US history. But what’s fascinating about this new mega-development aren’t just its buildings.

Fascinating. The construction simulations are fantastic.
VT: What is a flexitank?
AN: A flexitank is a large polyethylene bag that transforms a regular 20ft shipping container into a liquid transportation system. Think of a giant “wine box” that fits on the back of an 18-wheel tractor trailer or a rail flatcar and can be used to move liquids securely and cost effectively.Flexitanks come in various sizes/capacities the most commonly used capacity is 24,000 liters and can be used for shipping a huge variety of liquids. When shipping wine or other sensitive liquids, special types of flexitanks are used to provide extra protection to the wine.
Now NightBus, a dance-pop band with members split between Los Angeles and London, has what it says is a novel take on stereo. Its single, “When the Night Time Comes,” to be released on Tuesday by S-Curve Records, is produced in what it calls “three-way stereo,” an audio innovation for the earbud age.
Actually it is 4 different tracks – left, right, stereo, and mono. If you put the recording in to mono you get a separate (and different) mix than either left or right alone.
“For a finite-size system to persist in time (to live), it must evolve in such a way that it provides easier access to the imposed currents that flow through it.”
I got to thinking about the many changes that came about in the recording business during the 2000s the other day – some of it good, some of it bad, most of it significant. Here are what I consider to be the 12 major changes in recording that took place during the 2000s, in no particular order.
