A couple of good quotes

In an AP story about jerks and their ipods, from Wired Magazine website managing editor (deep breath) Leander Kahney:
Our world, he said, has become freakishly quiet. "It's not noise pollution - it's noise absence. And I find it almost more disturbing and upsetting than I did loud noise. It's sort of unnatural."

[T]hen there's the impromptu karaoke problem. Kahney said a colleague at Wired,which covers technology and how it affects culture, has a bad habit of crooning to his playlist at work.

Any Celine Dion in the mix?

"Oh no, he listens to these dreadful old hippie songs," he said. "You know, Creedence Clearwater Revival and the Allman Brothers."

An ignorant comment, but funny.
