Today's Webtip: The Birth of the Microphone
I have two primary tools for my job. A computer, and a microphone. Having lived through the development of the PC and the net, I'm fairly versed in it's history and development. That isn't the case with my microphones.
And that is why aolder Wired article on the birth of the microphone caught my eye. It was an easy way to grap some background information on something I carry with me almost every waking moment.
The article also provided a perspective that made it possible to reimagine that point in history with a little help from my own experience with the PC and internet boom. It must have been amazing times.
So if you want to get a glimpse of the ancient future, learabout microphones and read about the man who invented the photoelectric marimba, you might want to check it out.
