Ogg/MP3 Player Java Applet and jQuery – Stallman speech and CRS

Gnu audio

I’ve embeded jlGUI the java applet that looks like XMMS/winamp. It plays Ogg Vorbis and MP3’s. It can play them from a playlist. I’m also using jQuery the javascript library for the slide down affect, click on play Audio to see the player.

The audio I’ve used for the demo is Richard M. Stallman’s speech, Copyright and Globalization in the Age of Computer Networks, given at MIT and a few tracks from CRS : LA RUE NOUS GUETTE.

I’ll probably use this player next time I do a shoutcast.

Edit 2019: Ive removed this player but you can visit the site and see if its useful for you.

Free Audio

I put together a list of links to sites that contain Free Audio. I get all my music from these sites as well as the sounds for my projects.

Most people I know looking for music would probably like Jamendo. I think its important to support independent artists and you might find a new band that you like so its worth checking out.

I hope to put my list of links back up soon (edit 2019)

The Metaverse: the social, media-rich, 3-dimensional Web. In this panel at Accelerating Change 2005, entitled “Building the Metaverse”, two examples of the emerging Metaverse are demonstrated. Philip Rosedale, CEO of Linden Lab, shows off Second Life and David Alan Smith, creator of “The Colony”, demonstrates the Croquet project. What emerges are two similarly powerful interactive systems that are allowing people to interact and be creative together in ways never before possible. As computation spreads ever deeper into our lives, we will all increasingly live in the Metaverse. When you can build the ideal world, what do you build?
