People who spend too much time with their computer
I've been reading a lot of Tech news, as usual. Here are only a few of the more interesting articles and websites:
Jeremy Reid.com : This guy is awesome. He built a fully-functional wooden roller coaster in his backyard. The images, video, and technical details on the site are all impressive.
Brad Templeton Interview : Brad Templeton is the chairman of the board of the E.F.F. (Electronic Frontier Foundation). Very interesting with biographical info and addressing a few pertinent EFF issues.
Fogscreen.com : Tampere University of Technology (Korea?) professor Dr.Tech. Ismo Rakkolainen and a team (presumably) have developed a "penetrable dry fog display." Very cool. There is a sample video on the page.
Computer History Museum : Article on the recently-opened Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. I WANNA GO!!! Very interesting pictures from the museum.
Son Of Napster (SNapster) : Robert Cringely presents "one possible future for a music business that must inevitably change." Lengthy article, but extremely interesting.
