I should, and will, be posting on Google’s mounting antitrust problems and on the status of its attempt to corner the book search market, but today I am utterly transfixed by the functional Moog Synthesizer that Google has placed on its home page, in honor of what would have been Robert Moog’s 78th birthday.  (What’s so special about round numbers anyway?)

We can debate at length whether the Moog was a boon or disaster for rock music, much as we can debate the “Googlization of Everything,” but in the meantime I’m trying to figure out how to play the “Baba O’Riley” ostinato.  Distractions.
