Blinded Me With Science II
The morning after I finally am able to finish my post about Robin Brande and Fat Cat -- which had made me think of the song, I hear about Thomas Dolby on NPR. He had spent 20 years after the fame of that song, "She Blinded Me with Science" doing science. His tech consulting company developed the synthesizer software which enables all sorts of interesting and less than interesting ring tones for mobile telephones. And now, he's produced an online game that follows three EPSs (extended play songs) he created into Floating City -- "collaborative fiction," he calls online gaming.
