Re: [-empyre-] pieces of history

One thing about digital new media - people take computation for granted at
this point. I've always wanted to see a performanc where, say, the
compression involved in a 30k jpeg is calculated on an abacus. I've been
looking at Adam Osborne's early volumes on microcomputers - which cover
everything from machine language through calculating daisy wheel delays.
It's an incredible journey and we're just at the beginning of the process.

By the way, where would one put Stelarc's work here?

I also feel I should again apologize for not having a copy of the book as
of yet -
