"London Rain" by Louis MacNeice (poetry reading)
"randy" means sexually aroused. His remarks about conflicting impulses and conscience are interesting.

If we choose the path of righteousness, then we w

The Xerox Alto: A Personal Retrospective
[Recorded: June 4, 2001] Founded in 1970, the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) created, over a relatively short period, a paradigm shift in computing. Many of the technologies in modern personal computers, including high-quality graphical user interfaces featuring windows and icons, computer generated bitmapped graphics, Ethernet networked distributed computing, and laser printing, were mature technologies at PARC by the end of the 1970s. The platform on which many of these technologies w
