I’m wondering what I will do today.  It’s one of those rare Saturdays that I have nothing planned.  And nothing crazy-urgent needing to be done.  I think I should start with coffee.  Maybe I will research plasma and LCD TVs.  Maybe I will make a painting. 

I’ve been thinking a lot about health this week.  And about how fast life is moving by.  My friend Eleanor almost died from cerebral meningitis seven days ago.  Her husband got her to the hospital just in time.  In fact they told him she was not going to make it.  Hanging out with her in the hospital after she got out of ICU brought me very close to the situation.  Her totally unexpected brush with death reminded me of the frailty of this life.  It isn’t only disease and poor health that can get us.  Even a health nut can be killed in an accident.

  • Hi Henry,I’m working on (and have been for a while) a new verison of Ambisonia, which is totally geared towards accessibility. Essentially, visitors to the site will be capable of hearing stereo directly out of the browser, or 5.1 through computer speakers (directly out of the browser), or 5.1 through an AV receiver (directly out of the browser).The technology for this is already implemented and the new site is getting very close. I have a few more things to complete, such as making sure the Uploader application works well on all OSs .. and a few other things.The aim is to release the new site as a private beta to all the existing uploaders get lots of material on there, make sure the site is fast and stable .. then release a new site with high accessibility.The new site will also have a tipping system built in. So uploaders can earn. How much could uploaders earn? I dont know, its a tipping system so tips could be anything from 10c to god knows what.I’m thinking that what I might do is release the site as a beta to existing uploaders (without the tipping system) then as the uploaders test teh new site and put lots of content up, I’ll build in the tipping system. Then when everything looks hunkydory and there is lots of content there, I’ll open to the wide world.
