Today the 75th anniversary of the University of Cambridge’s Computer Lab is being celebrated. Among other events at the WGB today, the commemorative book that I previously talked about (detailing the first 75 years of Cambridge Computing) is due to be launched at 15:30. Also notable are the testimonials by Bill Gates, Eric Schmidt and Paul Jacobs, congratulating the lab on this unusually historic milestone for the discipline and industry.
Jarrod Radnich, featured in the earliest videos by The Piano Guys now has his own website, YouTube channel and more, if you’re interested in his music and performances. He’s a great piano player, and creates very elaborate arrangements of a range of music. The following video, inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean, has been featured here before (though due to it being moved between channels, the original instance is broken) and has thus far had over 80 million views.
His website features many more scores and much more music beyond his work with The Piano Guys – I particularly like the music embedded below, inspired by The Lord of the Rings.

The website of the month for April 2013 is Ascii Street View, a website that converts, in real-time, Google Street View into an ASCII Art representation. I’ve been wanting to make this website of the month for quite some time, but it was broken for me for a while. For the moment it seems fixed, so check it out while you can!
