Internet & Networking "In my not-so-spare time I work on a new technology called Hyperaudio. A question I'm frequently asked is 'What exactly is Hyperaudio?'. Well, it can be a lot of things but I often find it useful to distill it into a sentence. I got it down to this: 'Hyperaudio is to audio as Hypertext is to text.' I usually pause at this point because that statement is loaded with implications."

Looks, sorry, sounds interesting, but humans get most of their information visually, about 80% of the data processed by the brain is visual, if I'm not mistaking.

Still, very very interesting.

Music is the most important part of a movie for me. I like to 'read' books in audio form. I listen to information podcast during all of my free time. So I think I get most of my information through audio.
