MIDI is 30.

Here are three articles that might be of interest. The last article is the most interesting if you already know about MIDI; it's an interview with Dave Smith.

Happy Birthday MIDI!!!

Any one remember the movie "Wild in the Streets?" I for one hope that MIDI doesn't suffer the same fate as those over 30.

Nice set of articles. Thanks for posting them.

Cheers, Howard! I've started reading these articles, and it's good stuff!

MIDI has had a very long lifespan, and I think it will be around for a very long time, even though OSC is much more powerful, although much more complex and therefore not as accessible.

When OSC turns 30 wonder what will be new and compared to it.
