I enjoy photographing things in Florida along with occasional wiki-editing. I'm an alumnus of Stetson University in De Land, Florida. I currently live in Gainesville, Florida; my website is http://dingoskidneys.com/
Playing with contributing un poco to the Spanish wikipedia. es:Usuario:DanielHolth
I have just discovered Spoken Wikipedia. Neat idea. My contributions so far:
Spaghetti tree Fictional tree
Sealed crustless sandwich Patented food
Chai Delicious beverage
Fair use day "Fair use day". DELETED!!! (good)
Palace of Westminster Reading of the introduction to Wikipedia's Palace of Westminster article
Gauss-partial.ogg http://dingoskidneys.com/~dholth/Gauss-partial.ogg -- Reading of Carl Friedrich Gauss up until the "Later life" section. 7:26
The Spaghetti tree audio does not have Audacity's noise removal applied to it but the rest do. The Palace of Westminster article was recorded in the basement. Spaghetti tree and Sealed crustless sandwich were recorded in the closet. Which sounds the best to you?
Recorded with a laptop that is sometimes quiet (I try to start recording when the fan is inaudible) with a very cheap labtec microphone < $10, but I would prefer to have a nicer directional mic. Linux & Audacity. The touchpad provides a very quiet way of scrolling through the article.

Other patented foods
http://www.sptimes.com/2002/02/27/Columns/United_foes__patented.shtml -- the second portion of the article 'Fabioloso' -- they have decided to both copyright the recipe (but it could be reverse engineered) and patent the food (which protects it from reproduction for twenty years)
More serious than patents on sandwiches are patents on the plant that produces the food, for example a farmer could be sued for producing an engineered variety of corn, even if the patented gene in that corn cross-pollinated into his crop from an adjacent farm.
