If an alien located on a planet 100 light years from here was to switch on a big, multi-frequency radio receiver, and record all the noises coming from outer space for the next
hundred years, on all frequencies, how many soap operas, advertisements and new broadcasts would they pick up from Earth? Would a mass-market radio, similar to our Earthly equivalents, pick up anything? Over time, as the number of Earth transmissions increases exponentially, would the alien pick up a cacophony or a damp fizzle? [more inside]

Have you read or can you point me to any interesting articles about what will be the future of media like films/software/books given the way they are all being distributed online via torrent sites & the like. Will copyright go away or what? I am looking for INTERESTING theoretical speculations, not some person just saying the letter of the current law will be enforced or the usual doomsday-talk.

What are interesting projects where art meets new (digital/social) technologies?
Like Eric Whitacre's Virtual Choir, Youtube Symphony Orchestra, or Google Art Project.

I am a neuroscience student and I'd like to get my mentor a print of one of Santiago Ramon y Cajal's famous drawings of a neuron as a going away gift. Unfortunately, I can't find anywhere that sells prints or photos of these drawings online, but I was able to find a book at my university's library that has larger (12" x 24") high quality images of these drawings.
My question: what is the best way to go from book to print? Are there particular scan qualities or types? Particular types of paper/material to print onto? Places (FedEx, architecture firms) to go to? Any advice would be really helpful.

Can you point me to any good writing (research-based, speculative, or heck, even fictional) about the potential historical permanence or impermanence of digital media? I'm interested in both professional (theatrical movies, book publishing, maps...) and personal (digital snapshots, Livejournal, email...) forms of digital information storage. [more inside]

I'm trying to find the best/simplest wireless
solution for playing music/streams from my PC through my home stereo. Currently, I'm doing it the wired way: headphone line out (from laptop) to auxiliary input (using a cable that is adapted to rca plugs) on my Kenwood receiver. I'd like to buy a wireless solution and need advice on where I can find something that is both functional and affordable. I don't need anything fancier than what will work for streaming the PC output.

My little guy is 2.5 years old. We currently use a portable dvd player in the car and on planes, as well as at the house occasionally. I'm considering getting a hard-drive based media player for him, to keep from having to handle/store/transport the dvd's constantly. Advice? [more inside]
