Kind-of OT (but interesting): Raymond Scott

There is a 2 CD compilation of Raymond Scott's electronic works (from
the 50's and 60's) being released, which can be had before the official
release date through Thought there'd be more than a few
people on this list interested - my copy's on it's way. If you don't
remember who he is, he's the guy who wrote all that cool Warner Brother's
cartoon music, like Powerhouse and Dinner Music for a Pack of Hungry

For those not interested in experimental electronic music (and to stay
slightly on topic for the list), he inadvertantly contributed to computers
as well with several patents on magnetic tape positioning equipment and
sound generators. I know that IBM, HP, Atari, and others used his ideas in
their own designs, sometimes years after he implemented them.
