I liked this man, and for me, one particular title filled-in unknown
information from a favorite writer. F. A. Kittler's "Gramophone, Film,
Typewriter" coalesced the basic cross-referrencing hardware necessary to
achieve analog's scripted sound broadcasting, talking pictures and news
reels shown in movie theaters.
These precision recording prototypes allowed an imagination on rush beyond
vaudevilles repetitious acts. Thus, heralding aspects of models that remain
sustained in our culture. Commercial packaging allowed mogul entrepreneurs
to delight, sell and fulfill listener's expectant "eyes" and ears- their
personal "radio pictures" from various themes and scenarios.
The subsequent base line was the United States Naval Observatory's hourly
time signal which synced scripted and aurally cued entertainments, and all
were based upon a nationwide service, via Western Union Telegraph and AT&T
telephone lines, for the benefit of all analog broadcasting.
However, natural radio has forever been in our global background.
Except for researchers like Karl Jansky- and the human generations of
monitors who have done data gathering- there are the ubiquitous handhelds,
as from Apple. Their packaging requirements have been aggressively upgraded,
and nano-based, attractive, and obvious universal-apps/uses.
Tele-communictive toll road customer options have quadruppled. Technology
has never been the point. Creative people and their one-to-one achieved
products will globally permit interactive generations to monitor- in
realtime- every sound and image-mirrorings for the common good of all
We'll expect natural radio's sounds and imaging ASAP.
