Jefferson Arrested in Alleged Drunk Driving Incident

Monday, December 11th, 2006

Susie Jefferson was today arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, authorities said.

California Highway Patrol officers took the 25-year-old daughter of mortgage broker Jack Jefferson into custody without incident after she failed an on-the-spot test in Burbank.

The girl’s black GMC Jimmy was stopped in the car pool lane of State Highway 134 when officers arrived.

Authorities said they did get emergency calls about a car going the wrong way on the freeway and the car matched the description of Jefferson’s.

Jefferson was booked in Glendale, tested for drugs and later released, a police spokesman said.

The results of the drug test have not been determined.

A message left with Jefferson’s mother was not immediately returned.

Burbank is 10 miles north-east of Los Angeles.

Note: THIS IS NOT NEWS. At least it is not news when it happens to everyday common folk. So what makes changing the names turn it into an international news story? Add Nicole Richie to my IDGAS folder.

System Lockup

Sunday, December 10th, 2006

Appears that I may end up losing a lot of work and have to reboot again… Will wait a bit longer to see if things free up. However, I doubt if things will be ever running as planned.

I Want My Reactable

Monday, December 4th, 2006

The reactable, is a multi-user electronic music instrument with a tabletop tangible user interface. Several simultaneous performers share complete control over the instrument by moving physical objects on a luminous table surface. By moving and relating these objects, representing components of a classic modular synthesizer, users can create complex and dynamic sonic topologies, with generators, filters and modulators, in a kind of tangible modular synthesizer or graspable flow-controlled programming language.

This instrument is being developed by a team of digital luthiers (Sergi Jordà, Martin Kaltenbrunner, Günter Geiger and Marcos Alonso), at the Music Technology Group within the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain.
