Luckily language is never in the exclusive control of scholars; it does not belong to them alone, as they are often inclined to believe; it belongs to all who have it as a mother-tongue. It is governed not by elected representatives but by a direct democracy, by the people as a whole assembled in town-meeting.

Eric Lippert, explainer extraordinnaire, has started a series that we might call "Fabulous Adventures in Music." Knowing Eric, we can assume that his descriptions of, say, the physics of music will be as enlightening and entertaining as his exegeses on programming and math and code security. Check it out.

Bonus points for those who get the Jobim reference.
