Welcome to my blog...It's more of an occasional-random-quirky-thought blog or a check-out-this-cool-link blog than one of those this-is-what-i-had-for-breakfast-today-and-these-are-my-feelings-about-life blogs and it's definitely not one of those awful i'm-useful-and-have-important-things-to-say-and-i'm-contributing-to-society blogs. Enjoy.

oh my god... someone FINALLY did it... I knew it was just a matter of time! I've been telling my students for years about how Speak & Spell was one of the first commercial DSP applications (and what helped make Texas Instruments what it is today)... and I always said that it would be fun to do a modern recreation of the original speak & spell. Finally... we have one!
This almost sounds like a mind-teaser or something: how do you make fire from ice?

Funny twist on the whole Freedom fries thing... I was reading Roger Ebert's review on the movie Red which is finally coming out on DVD here (I've been waiting for this -- I've only seen white) and I clue in that the Blue in the French flag stands for Freedom (Liberté) -- which ties in (of course) to the biggest American icon there is --- the statue of liberty. I just thought it was funny.
