Before There Was the Internet ...
Way before the internet -- that is -- there was the Coffee House (cool article from the Economist.)

Speaking of coffee houses, at our local Coffee Cottage in beautiful downtown Newberg, we were treated to the delightful sounds of the Japanese Koto on Saturday. The musician , a native of Japan, resides in Cresswell, Oregon of all places. (Alas, I forget her name.) She was amazing on the instrument. Really beautiful. The range of sounds that can come out of this instrument is impressive.
