Make mine a ristretto...
Trying to ease the image of the prison system once again, the Washington state Department of Corrections is adding an espresso stand at its McNeil Island penitentiary. Why? Because the D.O.C. thinks it will make a fine addition to its vocational training program.

The library was once a sanctuary of quiet---but modern technology has irreversibly transformed its soundscape.

"Printers, copiers, wireless computers, and espresso machines all contribute to the soundscape of typical libraries," writes Acentech's Benjamin Markham, who will explore the implications of wireless technology on library acoustics (4pAAc5).
