Magic Cap was General Magic's platform for personal intelligent communicators. This is the first time it was demoed publicly, by Bill Atkinson and myself, in front of 2,500 people at the keynote for the San Francisco Macworld on January 6, 1994, following a panel discussion celebrating the Mac's tenth birthday. My favorite part is the parade at the end.

Wesley Stace, aka John Wesley Harding, is a great songwriter. I love his Donald Trump/Mr. Tambourine man parody, "Mr. Tangerine Man".

This is pretty much the holy grail for Dylan collectors, even more so than the 65-66 studio outtakes issued last year. This 36 CD box set contains dozens of soundboard recordings, most of them never even bootlegged, from the amazing, contentious 1966 world tour, where audiences booed the finest music of Dylan's career because they thought he was selling out by playing electric.

A car inadvertently knocked over a fire hydrant across the street from us in Palo Alto yesterday afternoon, resulting in an impressive 30-foot high geyser. It took almost a half hour for the city to shut it down.

I'm excited about the forthcoming Bruce Springsteen autobiography, due to be published by Simon & Schuster (the publisher of Dylan's awesome autobiography) on September 27th this year.

I did an interview with recode.net about the new Steve Jobs flick.  It's cavalier with the facts, but great at exploring the deeper truths behind them.  It's also kind of weird to be fictionalized.

Wow!  Every outtake from Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde, available on Nov. 6th.  The only question is whether to get the comprehensive 18 disc version or merely the 6 disc sampler - I will probably get both.

My review of the recent Steve Jobs bio:

"I adore the early Apple Computer that Brent and Rick belittle, so I'm writing this piece to defend it."

I visited with the amazing team working on the new "Steve Jobs" movie yesterday.   I feel very lucky to be portrayed by someone as talented and scrupulous as Michael Stuhlbarg.
