Turn your $60 router into a $600 router: "Turn your $60 router into a $600 router - Of all the great DIY projects at this year s Maker Faire, the one project that really caught my eye involved converting a regular old $60 router into a powerful, highly configurable $600 router. The router has an interesting history, but all you really need to know is that the special sauce lies in embedding Linux in your router.

The worst bill you've never heard of: "The worst bill you've never heard of - Simply put, SIRA fundamentally redefines copyright and fair use in the digital world. It would require all incidental copies of music to be licensed separately from the originating copy. Even copies of songs that are cached in your computer's memory or buffered over a network would need yet another license. Once again, Big Copyright is looking for a way to double-dip into your wallet, extracting payment for the same content at multiple levels."

Whitney Music Box: "

each of the 48 dots moves in a circle on a 3 minute cycle. at the end of 3 minutes, the outermost dot will have moved around the circle once (this dot represents the 1st harmonic or fundamental). the next dot will have moved around the circle twice (representing the 2nd harmonic), & so on. each dot triggers a note when it passes the zero degree line, so that the pattern causes chords, ascending & descending runs & melodies to be heard.


The idea comes from the motion graphics John Whitney described in his book, Digital Harmony. Is it too far-fetched to imagine something like this paired with some Bach or Mozart? It could be more of a modal visualization (a la The Shape of Song), but would be all varieties of awesome.

Update: Yeah, maybe a little far-fetched.
