Neil Gaiman uses ACX tools to liberate audio rights and to produce quality audiobooks.

I really like using the TTS functions in OS X. Helps me get through reading that would otherwise have me alt-tabbing to distractions. The new high quality voices are a great addition. Usually $45 each retail, they're downloadable for free from Lion. I'm using the British voice Serena at the moment, and everything sounds like an Economist audio edition.

The Scottish Standard English voice, Fiona, is great to my ears. The Japanese voice is equally excellent.

Guess it helps to be handsome as hell as well as smart if you're going to drive around the country in a magic bus.

Amsterdam

As an American who has been living here for several years, I am struck, every time I go home, by the way American cities remain manacled to the car.
While Europe is dealing with congestion and greenhouse gas buildup by turning urban centers into pedestrian zones, many American cities are carving out more parking spaces.

Enable Launchpad shortcut with an older keyboard. (Not that it's so useful, but still.) Works for me, and did not require Keyflip or any other third-party utilities.
