Open Sound Control forum

The CNMAT people have made a forum at the Open Sound Control site. OSC is a way of communicating musical information between devices, much in the same way as MIDI, but without all the problems of MIDI (low resolution etc). Although OSC seems to have gained ground in the research community, I think we all have to support it more if it is ever going to be accepted by the commercial industry.

Mirror Neurons

The concept of mirror neurons was discovered at the University of Parma, Italy some years back, and shows how we have the same neural activitiy whether we do a movement ourselves or just watch someone else doing it. NOVA has made an excellent documentary about mirror neurons.
