Getting the Book Invented Properly

Coincidentally, the day after Take Control of iBooks Author was released, The Literary Platform, a site that showcases projects experimenting with literature and technology, announced the winner of its Douglas Adams Animation competition. Entries in that competition had to provide animation for an audio track that Douglas Adams recorded in the early 1990s to promote the Voyager Expanded Books. A crunchy-sounding 8-bit-audio recording, in fact. The recording used for the competition’s winning entry has had a musical background added; you can find my personal copy of the original recording (converted to AAC audio) here.
