Rodney King, key figure in L.A. riots, dies -

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Koon and Powell were convicted and sentenced to two years in prison, and King was awarded $3.8 million in damages. The police chief, Daryl Gates, who had been hailed as an innovator in the national law enforcement community, came under intense criticism from city officials who said officers were slow to respond to the riots. He resigned under pressure soon after. Gates died of cancer in 2010. In the two decades after he became the central figure in the riots, King was arrested several times, mostly for alcohol-related crimes, the last in Riverside Calif., last July. He later became a record company executive and a reality TV star, appearing on shows such as "Celebrity Rehab." In an interview earlier this year with The Associated Press, King said he was a happy man. "America's been good to me after I paid the price and stayed alive through it all," he says. "This part of my life is the easy part now." Rev. Al Sharpton said in a statement that King was a symbol of the civil and anti-police brutality movement. "Through all that he had gone through with his beating and his personal demons he was never one to not call for reconciliation and for people to overcome and forgive," Sharpton wrote. "History will record that it was Rodney King's beating and his actions that made America deal with the excessive misconduct of law enforcement." Attorney Harland Braun, who represented one of the police officers, Ted Briseno, in the federal trial, said King's name would always be a part of Los Angeles history. "I always saw him as a sad figure swept up into something bigger than he was," Braun said. "He wasn't a hero or a villain. He was probably just a nice person." King's case never would have become such a symbol without the video, he said. "If there hadn't been a video there would have never been a case. In those days, you might have claimed excessive force but there would have been no way to prove it." The San Bernardino County coroner will perform an autopsy on King within 48 hours.

Lester Flatt, has died. He was 88. Scruggs' son Gary said his father died of natural causes Wednesday morning at a Nashville hospital. Earl Scruggs was an innovator who pioneered the modern banjo sound. His use of three fingers rather than the clawhammer style elevated the banjo from a part of the rhythm section — or a comedian's prop — to a lead instrument. His string-bending and lead runs became known worldwide as "the Scruggs picking style" and the versatility it allowed ... (The Commercial Appeal)

Edgar M. Villchur, Hi-Fi Innovator, Dies at 94

Mon, Oct 17, 2011
Before the tweeter, high frequencies were emitted by the woofer, but with very poor sound quality. Instead of the cone, Mr. Villchur (and other innovators working independently of one another) devised small dome-shaped diaphragms that proved optimal for producing high frequencies. In the early days of the turntable, one of its biggest problems was an effect called rumble: vibrations from the motor and the turntable that were picked up by the needle. Mr. Villchur’s solution was to separate the motor from the turntable and connect the two with a rubber belt, significantly reducing the vibrations. Even though digital sound has largely replaced vinyl and turntables, Mr. Atkinson said, “Edgar Villchur’s inventions have led to the application of scientific principles that are used in every loudspeaker now on the market.” Edgar Marion Villchur was born in Manhattan on May 28, 1917, the only child of Mark and Mariam Villchur, who had immigrated from Russia. His father was editor of a Russian-language newspaper, his mother a biologist. It was his service in World War II that sparked Mr. Villchur’s fascination with sound and electronics. He had graduated from City College in 1938, then earned a master’s degree in education there two years later. But within a year he was drafted into the Army Air Forces and was trained as an electronics technician. For most of the next five years, while rising to captain, he was responsible for his squadron’s radio operations in the Pacific. After the war Mr. Villchur opened a radio shop in Greenwich Village, making repairs and building custom hi-fi sets. He also taught a course in sound reproduction at New York University. Mr. Villchur married Rosemary Shafer in 1945. Besides his wife and daughter, he is survived by a son, Mark, of Boston. The Villchurs moved to Woodstock in 1952. In his basement, Mr. Villchur began testing his notion of a sealed-cabinet loudspeaker. One day in spring 1954, speaking to his acoustics class at N.Y.U, he hinted at his idea. One student, Henry Kloss, stayed after class, eager to learn more. Soon, student and teacher were in Mr. Villchur’s 1938 Buick, headed to Woodstock. In Mr. Villchur’s basement workshop, they listened to the copious low-frequency tones on an LP recorded by the renowned organist E. Power Biggs. Mr. Kloss had a loft in Cambridge, Mass., where he was already building mail-order cabinets for Baruch-Lang speakers. It became the first headquarters for Acoustic Research. Mr. Kloss, who died in 2002, is credited with designing the production process for the AR-1 speaker and its successors, the AR-2 and the AR-3, which combined Mr. Villchur’s woofer and tweeter models. Among Mr. Villchur’s duties was promoting the products. In the early 1960s ... (New York Times)

Steve Jobs: think different - The Guardian

Sat, Oct 8, 2011
The astonishing creative chaos of the first digital age was, like any other technology in history, falling prey to the controlling greed of its early innovators. In Apple's products Jobs had created not so much a unique combination of art and utility but rather the perfect vehicle for commercial ambition. That, though, would not have been by accident.
