gobsmacked again

I'm pretty much continuously amazed at the things I find in an ordinary day of reading blogs and following links. Case in point of the moment is the webnote app at aypwip. Implications are pretty staggering.

Thinking about sound

The whole issue of SOUND awaits my attention... Need to find out about .ogg files, and the whole issue of handling sound better. The example of the moment is from Maciej Ceglowski's Idle Words (http://www.idlewords.com/2004/07/canada_day.htm), which includes a short bit on poutine which includes a link to http://united-states.asinah.net/american-encyclopedia/wikipedia/p/po/poutine.html which links to an Audio clip by a Québecois... a bit of fiddling with URLs gets me to The Canadian Encyclopedia, and to The American Encyclopedia.
This is absolutely exemplary of the possibilities of the medium, the command Maciej has of it, and the delights to be found in this realm.
