One of These Days - Pink Floyd - live at Pompeii

I AM a great fan of Pink Floyd. THIS particular performance of theirs was ABSOLUTE magic in more ways that one. During the ”traverse of the lower slopes” of my own journey up to the very top of the mountain, the universe had them produce a very rare Active Play Videodisc of the concert, in PAL hi-quality sound and video format, which contained several shots of volcanic lava exploding and traveling over the islands of Hawaii. I used the individual shots on that videodisc with this system to explain and demonstrate the art of the possible to Oxford Universtity Press which led to the production of the Volcano Videodisc and subsequently to the persuasion of Apple Computers of the fact that Interactive Multi-media Communications might be THE next THING to focus on for the future after desk-top publishing.

Along came Tim Berners Lee and the rest is history, so to speak.
