As of today, British Internet users can no longer trust that their online communications are private or secure. With the passage of the UK's Investigatory Powers Act into law, data and information of British users is now at greater risk! Ryan Polk writes about the impact on #encryption, web browser histories and more... 
There is an old adage that trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair. When it comes to the Internet and its users, the same holds true. For average Internet users, trust in the Internet has to be built. They have to gain confidence in the safety of their private ...

Fascinating...
 
This will be very interesting to musicians and possibly incomprehensible to everyone else. Adam Neely is discussing how musicians trained on classical versus jazz or rock perceive rhythm differently. I find it fascinating since I always thought that jazz/rock musicians just had a completely supernatural ability to parse complex rhythms, and I simply have none of the requisite musicianship skills.

But Neely is showing something much more subtle: all the types of music are just as aware of rhythm, but jazz/rock music (and really, all types of music derived from West African drum music) requires a very strong awareness of phase locking (i.e., that everyone not only be at a shared tempo, but in the same phase), because the instruments have a much sharper attack and you'll really hear phase errors. On the other hand, classical instruments have a much softer attack, which means phase locking doesn't matter as much, but instead highly non-metronomic rhythms are common and a core part of the music.

Which is totally true: when I'm playing the piano, if you put a metronome next to me it would instantly get ludicrously out of sync. Even within a single measure, it's common for the tempo to shift as part of the emphasis and phrasing. But contrarily, if you play a rhythm next to me, I can't automatically sync into it the way all my more modern musician friends do.

Neely provides a lot more explanation and detail, and a bunch of examples that really highlight it. These are two completely different schools of music, and it's the influence of drums – specifically, West African drumming – that makes the difference.

I stood on the side of a street this morning in a Santa hat waving at people. It was so amusing I had to record a bit about it... :-)
I was fascinated by reactions by people to my waving at them from the side of the road today...
