On an entirely personal note, I was having a conversation with my coworkers today about the change in technology within my lifetime; when I was young, there was no world wide web, no digital music, no timeshifting of TV programs, etc. etc. My workplace has an intern young enough to have never encountered these things.
Now, I noticed this musicmaking tutorial on Youtube. In 1985, this would have been done in a room filled with electronics, probably hand-built, with cabling run all over the place. Now, the software that accomplishes that, with a single computer, is expressly designed to simulate those old analog connections. It’s very wierd, and probably meaningless to those under 30.
Also, yay dubstep.
