Save our Sounds

Ian (nice to have you back) White’s blog First Loser reminded me of a technology piece on the BBC’s Digital Planet “Save our Sounds” about everyday noises that are becoming extinct.

For example, a 300 baud modem’s handshake, A dot matrix printer, the whirring noise of a 5.25 inch floppy etc, even the click of an SLR camera. The British Library are looking, or listening out for clips.

Any geek out there with kit you’ve been dying to fire-up but don’t have a reason – now’s your chance.

Thanks for the welcome back. What about the pulses from a strauger exchange and and the sounds of a 'wet' facsimile machine!
