Story
Tagline
The rumors you've heard are probably true.
Introduction
I teach people about music, technology and pedagogy.

I create music, and see blurred lines between being a composer, a performer, and a digital-instrument-designer. I am an autodidact and a polymath, but eventually it all comes back to music.

"A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful." Jacqueline Bisset

Bragging rights
I can sing the alphabet backwards from Z to A. With a computer's help, I wrote a piece of music with one million notes in it. My cat has 27 toes. I make a wicked pâté.

#ifihadglass  We'd wear Glass on our tour across the USA (25 cities, NYC to California via SXSW in Austin - http://bit.ly/YAcGcj). Capture the whole tour (including the shows!) and share it with our fans on G+. Use the footage to make the first Glass-shot music video for our new song "The Singularity" (http://www.kurzweilai.net/?p=179255 -- inspired by the theories of Google's new Director of Engineering, Ray Kurzweil). And show the video at our Googleplex performance on March 25.

It'd work a hell of a lot better than our last attempt: http://bit.ly/YAd0bg

U/E number ticks up due to people re-entering the labor market. Number of new non-farm jobs up 171,000.

So glad you liked it!  Incidentally, there are only 9 days left in my Kickstarter 'greatest hits' project.  I hope you'll consider supporting the album and helping keep the videos going!, and thanks in advance for any help.   http://kck.st/1pPyqT2

Improving accessibility in Hangouts

Accessibility is something we care a lot about on the Hangouts team. The Hangout Captions app, for example, enables live transcription services for the deaf and hard of hearing (http://goo.gl/4RujF). And "Take the Floor" makes it easier for sign language speakers to do a Hangout together (http://goo.gl/chyKS). Today we're rolling out two accessibility improvements in Hangouts - a Sign Language Interpreter app, and a fuller set of keyboard shortcuts. 

1) Using the Sign Language Interpreter app, deaf or hard of hearing users who prefer sign language can invite interpreters to speak and sign for them during a Hangout. They'll always see their interpreter at the top right of the window, and they'll become the focus of the Hangout whenever their interpreter speaks for them. You can install the app using this link: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_?gid=532733437531.

2) Keyboard shortcuts are also available in Hangouts -- great for people who can't or don't want to use a mouse during the video chat. For example: muting your microphone is now as simple as Ctrl+D (PC) or Command+D (Mac), and you can start chatting with Ctrl+B (PC) or Command+B (Mac). To view the full list of keyboard shortcuts just type '?' while in a Hangout, or visit this page: support.google.com/plus/bin/answer.py?answer=2752487.


Both features are rolling out gradually, so let us know what you think once you've taken them for a spin!

This looks like a great opportunity for net-empowered art collaboration.
