Former US Ambassador Sues Apple Because Telegram Users Are Making Him Feel Scared [Update] (techdirt)

Here's an interesting lawsuit, brought to you by some familiar names. And by "interesting," I mean "exceedingly stupid." The lawsuit [PDF] was filed by "Ambassador Marc Ginsberg." Ginsberg last served as an ambassador in 1998. And yet, that title is being used to name him as the plaintiff. The defendant is Apple. In the mix (but not a defendant) is Telegram, a popular and often controversial messaging app that has served as a mouthpiece for alt-right personalities and others who have been bann...

Watch John Cage Play His “Silent” 4’33” in Harvard Square, Presented by Nam June Paik (1973)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RAgthGA-9Q Have you ever played 4’33” in public? Or rather, have you ever not played 4’33” in public? Calling as its score does for no notes at all over its titular duration, John Cage’s signature 1952 composition has made many ponder (and just as many joke about) what it means to actually perform the thing. If music is, by its most basic definition, organized sound, then 4’33” is anti-music, the deliberate absence of organized sound. Yet it isn’t silence...
