QuickTime VR Panoramas
I'm a big fan of Apple's QuickTime
VR immersive imaging technology, which I first wrote
about in 1995.
I frequently participate in the Wrinkle
in Time projects, in which QuickTime VR "panographers"
around the world shoot panoramas at synchronized times (more
details). I also host the Wrinkle email discussion list.
My Wrinkle contributions:
Jan 1, 2000. Take a New Year's spin at the edge of the Pacific
Ocean. Music by Heid, too.
Another Day at the Beach?
June Solstice, 1999. High-wire acrobatics from the California Department
Santa's Musical Men.
December Solstice, 1998. Nighttime holiday decorations and an old
soundtrack by my father, who did multimedia decades before the term
Morning. December Solstice, 1997. A small town on a sunny winter
Great Day in Elk,
1996. This small town knows how to party!

Includes samples of my dad and my dog.
Slow Blues. (Shockwave

performed by the Heid brothers. This was just a test page for the
then-new Shockwave Audio format, but the tune is worth a listen.

some of today's incredible software synthesizers and digital audio
effects plug-ins. Linked here because its link on Macworld.com is
