If I were at all technically adpet, I would so totally build my own synth. Oh yeah, and if I had any talent for making halfway decent music with a synth, too.

Report: U.S. lags in speedy Internet. Did you know the average price for broadband in Japan is $25 a month, and that's for a 26 megabit connection? I pay $45 for a 3 megabit. Dammit.

The Future of Television is a weblog about how technology is changing the face of television. I personally don't watch any TV that I can't download online somewhere, so I'm interested in how distribution of TV shows might change in the future, maybe from broadcast to pay per D/L or subscription model(without commercials, of course)? I mean, even the now infamous John Stewart on Crossfire segment has gotten more play on the internet than it ever did during it's original broadcast. The times, they are a changin'.

Television drama affects public opinion. " Holbrook and Hill didn?t start out to explore how crime dramas affected political views. They wanted to see how NBC?s political drama The West Wing, about a fictional president, affected attitudes towards the real president."... "But when they were analyzing the data, the researchers found something surprising: while only 11.5 percent of The West Wing viewers mentioned crime as the most important problem facing the nation, 27 percent of Third Watch viewers indicated so."
