Envisioning the Ultimate Publishing Pod (Part 1)

June 16th, 2008 § 0 comments § permalink


I write Songs and Musical Drama. Furthermore, I have some thoughts I need to share about Nature and Science. How can I best present my work to the world? What would I like people to experience when they visit my work on the web?

I guess the overarching “theme” of this first Pod concerning “The Ultimate Publishing Pod” is the vision of being able to use the entire internet to amplify a published meme all within a unifying aesthetic envelope.

Publishing “Illumination”

May 30th, 2008 § 0 comments § permalink


I’m playing around with how I might use the “tell-me-more button” to publish my music and songs and pods of all flavors.

Lets say I want to present my song Illumination to the world…

(Hover your mouse over the link at “Illumination” – an mp3 will open up and play. Down the bottom of the little window there will be “Related Media” icons. These will take you to a lyric, a piano/vocal score, and a blog entry about the song).

Continuing with my Apture fun and games, let’s see, I’d like to visit Split, Rome, Athens, the Pyramids, Prague…

That will last us a few days.

The New Improved “Tell-Me-More” Button

May 28th, 2008 § 1 comment § permalink


(UPDATE – 5.29.08 – I’ve installed Apture. Here’s what it looks like to mess around with it.)

I remember seeing a TV special back in the late 90s with Ted Koppel moderating a panel talking about the future of computers and the brand-new internet. John Sculley, CEO of Apple Computer at the time, and Nicholas Negroponte of MIT’s Media Lab were trying to talk sense and vision to the novelist Tom Wolf and the historian Daniel Boorstin.

Scully was trying the explain the “tell-me-more” button, to Wolf’s and Boorstin’s consternation and incomprehension

The “tell-me-more” button has arrived in the guise of Apture. Here’s a tutorial.

I’m supposed to be able to easily install Apture in WordPress at theWheel. So far I haven’t been able to get it to work.

I’ll make it work.

Where Am I?
