I might do anything.
The Fall, Perverted By Language (1983, Rhapsody)
Frog Eyes, Paul's Tomb: A Triumph (2010, Rhapsody)
Media announcement: I muse on the discrete, networked charms of the Laptop Orchestra of Louisiana (pictured above) and make a subtle plea to my employers (or whoever) in this week's entry for the Record Crate blog at 225 Magazine.

I might be at the forefront.
I also coined the term "data landlord" in a meeting this morning, referring to computer systems in which you lease space and keep information, hoping that they don't suddenly increase the rent, throw you out and keep your stuff, or in the case of Google, one day start sending a bill.
