4.6 Agency explanations: rational choice theory

3.2 Recording on the wire

A paper published by Oberlin Smith in an 1888 issue of Electrical World discussed the possibilities for recording sound using the property of magnetism. He envisaged a cotton thread impregnated with steel dust passing through a coil carrying a current controlled by a microphone.

Unfortunately he dismissed his idea because, as he said in his paper, he thou
