The ORIGINAL PHOTO was grabbed by Dan "Kana" Covington back in the 1970's and caught Bill in what I believe is one of his best images. Keep in mind this is a computer artist's rendition, not an exact image.
The rendition you see here was hugely shrunk from a work by a friend of mine in Canada. It looks like ice crystals or salt crystals or an in Indian sand painting. The version he did originally, was big enough to print a mural or billboard from and it took his Macintosh HOURS of high-speed calcs to construct. I have it saved on CD somewhere. This is the kind of image that CAN be a composite of many thousands of other images, shrunk up so tiny as to resemble grains of sand.
Now, I know I am really fantasizing here.. but WHAT IF each of those data clusters [grains of salt or sand] - when you zoom in on them - were an MP3 recording of a song? What if all those songs were selected from the playlists at KCAC and KDKB and made LISTENABLE and DOWNLOADABLE from a KCAC Lives! Memorial Website? The idea is that such an image would be in essence a MENU of say, random songs - each to be "discovered" by the browser? Wanna play? Dan Page has the larger pic posted on his website in a version that is over a MEG in size. Just click the headline.
Call me crazy (you won't be the first) but this might be the type of online memorial that would spread the experience and make it work!
Now.... please excuse me. I must continue my experiments in the basement. Oh sure, I know we don't HAVE a basement - but it's a great way to hide my perpetual motion machine.
