Phonautogram.

No, it's not the cold, damp New England weather that is giving me goosebumps right now. It's hearing the voice of someone long gone recorded not quite 150 years ago that's making me shiver. Wow.

Haven't stopped by the blog for some time; good to see you're still (or back) at it! Back when I lived in Indiana, I got to see what I was told was the only complete, original phonautograph. I'm a total record geek, so for me this is just one of the coolest stories ever.

Nice to see you again! I'm going to try to get into a more regular posting pattern; we'll see if that works out.

Have to admit, I'm more of a fan of early technology than current/cutting edge stuff. The earlier discoveries seem to me more revolutionary than what we see today.
