Thought about ResourceDiscoveryInP2PNetworks.

Zoom in and out of the universe. Each click takes you 10 times closer or father away. Zoom out from a proton through a leaf cell, to the solar system, to 10 million light years away - http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/primer/java/scienceopticsu/powersof10/index.html

Looking at upgading my computer (a Dell Dimension XPS T450) - probably by adding a PowerLeap PL-iP3/T with a 1.2GHz Celeron.

In the meantime, I'm looking at SpeedingUpWindows98.

Saw OperationKidBrother at a KlubCatusi / Cinephilia film night at the MidlandsArtsCentre.

Ever get the urge to phone random strangers? The Payphone project lets you do just that! - http://www.payphoneproject.com/

Very good article detailing overheard conversations on the payphones at the entrance to Ballston Metro station, Washington DC. - http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn?pagename=article&node=style/postmagazine&contentId=A21503-2001Aug30

Strange, but nice I think - annotated Dvorak - http://www.listeningadventures.org

Bought a Psion 5mx yesterday - I'm editing this page using it! That's pretty cool!

5th Jan 2002

Listened to Orson Wells 1938 version of WarOfTheWorlds - tried to imagine what it would have been like to have tuned into it live, not knowing that it was a Mercury Theatre production. The impact must have been electric.

What is Film Noir anyway? - http://www.imagesjournal.com/issue02/infocus/filmnoir.htm

Read about and listened to MassiveAttack - particularly Protection and Better Things - TraceyThorn has a wonderful voice.

Mrs Miller is now recognised as one of the most underated musical geniuses of the 1960's. The whistling on Downtown is heart rendering - http://www.franklarosa.com/vinyl/Exhibit.jsp?AlbumID=77

Just how much information is there in the world? According to http://www.sims.berkeley.edu/research/projects/how-much-info/ there is roughly 1.5 billion gigabytes of intentionally recorded infomation, which is about 250 megabytes per person.

According to http://www.ccsf.caltech.edu/~roy/dataquan/ you'd need about 5 Exabytes (5 000 000 000 000 000 000 bytes) to record all words ever spoken by human beings. You'd also need a time machine and a lot of patience.
