What Makes a Good Audiobook Narrator? - “Reading was my escape and my comfort, my consolation, my stimulant of choice: reading for the pure pleasure of it, for the beautiful stillness that surrounds you when you hear an author’s words reverberating in your head.” ― Paul Auster, The Brooklyn Follies This have been said to describe the pleasure of reading a book, but the same feelings should be had when listening to an audiobook. It is the “author’s words reverberating”… it is the pleasure of being told a story and be pulled in to the author’s world. This requires not just the skills of a good voice actor, but also the skills of a true storyteller.
After 10 Years, Google Books Is Legal On Friday, a federal circuit court made clear that Google Books is legal. A three-judge panel on the Second Circuit ruled decisively for the software giant against the Authors Guild, a professional group of published writers which had alleged Google’s scanning of library books and displaying of free “snippets” online violated its members’s copyright. To some digital-rights followers, the Google Books case had seemed to drag on forever: The Authors Guild first filed suit 10 years ago.
Classical Archives: MIDI In a nutshell, MIDI is a digital protocol, that is, a language which communicates performance instructions for any musical instrument or device (such as your sound card) which understands the language. MIDI is not audio information. It is primarily used to communicate which, when, for how long, and how loud to play musical notes, and with which "instrument." But it can be used to communicate a great range of other performance data.

Teaching Copyright As today's tech-savvy teens become increasingly involved with technology and the Internet for learning, work, civic engagement, and entertainment, it is vital to ensure that they understand their legal rights and responsibilities under copyright law and also how the law affects creativity and innovation. This curriculum is designed to give teachers a comprehensive set of tools to educate students about copyright while incorporating activities that exercise a variety of learning skills. Lesson topics include: the history of copyright law; the relationship between copyright and innovation; fair use and its relationship to remix culture; peer-to-peer file sharing; and the interests of the stakeholders that ultimately affect how copyright is interpreted by copyright owners, consumers, courts, lawmakers, and technology innovators.
