Two Great Things From the Last Week

posted by on July 11 at 17:00 PM

1) If you’re a last.fm user, then you should definitely be aware of lastgraph3, which will build beautiful plots of your listening habits over time. It’s a much better way to sift through that data than Last.fm provides natively. Great eye candy.

2) I spent a large portion of the evening of the fourth staring at a grid of blinking lights, which was more engaging than the fireworks in the sky. The Tenori-On supplants the Nintendo Wii as the ultimate party toy, allowing the user to create and modify sequences of electronic music on the fly, with a built-in collection of instruments and effects that build to passable electronic music without any sense of musical skill. Sure, serious musicians use them too, but it seems best suited as a $1200 conversation piece. Here’s video of the Tenori-On in action.
