For all the hullabaloo about faster computers, smarter software and wireless widgets, the real excitement at last week's Comdex/Fall trade show occurred in an annex where the called multimedia computer companies were quarantined.For those who wanted more than the basic multimedia setup,companies on the hardware side were touting the benefits of subwoofer speakers to go with their stereo computer speakers, faster CD-ROM drives, chips and plug-in boards that produce higher-quality color images, big-screen color monitors, devices with which to connect camcorders and VCRs to computers and, of course, lots of computer memory.

Next weekend, visitors to the Baltimore Art Museum's newly renovated Contemporary Wing may find themselves staring up at a hole in the ceiling, their mouths gaping open like fish. They'll have been hooked by a central feature of the $6.5 million building project - artist Sarah Oppenheimer's playful, gravity-defying illusion with the enigmatic name "W-120301. " And who would blame them for staring? How often can we watch someone appear to walk up a wall? Oppenheimer knocked holes in walls and cut through ceiling to change the architecture of the Baltimore Museum of Art . And, that's not a bad metaphor for museum director Doreen Bolger's goal to knock down the walls between the museum and the community.

To some, multimedia may seem like a technology whose utility lies far in the future, its applications limited to education and training.But to others, these early computer-based software packages are a relatively crude first step into a potentially booming market for video, computer and telecommunications hardware; and software that harnesses multimedia for use in business, travel, entertainment, home education, sports, recreation and more.Under test at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, for instance, is a courseware system called the Perseus Project.

When it comes to proclaiming the Easter message, a simple sermon might not cut it anymore. Consider a group of Lutherans in Carroll County who will experience the life, death and resurrection of Jesus through sacred music and ancient art -- in a PowerPoint computer presentation on a giant screen. Or the Arbutus Methodist congregation for the deaf that expresses Easter through dance and a drumbeat as members sign the words to a popular gospel single. Or a Towson Pentecostal church whose service features contemporary music, lighting effects and video graphics.

It started out as a routine photo assignment. The Baltimore City Department of Health had proposed new regulations that would limit the number of birds anyone could keep to 50. Pigeon fanciers were distressed, saying the limit would have a disastrous effect on their sport. Keith Wilkerson, the executive chef of Morgan State University, has bred racing pigeons for five years and keeps about 150 homing pigeons in his basement and in a shed behind his West Baltimore home. He said his wife and four children also fancy the birds.

Children have defied their parents since children first appeared on the planet. Sometimes, kids do what they're told not to do just because … well, because they were told not to do it. Other times, curiosity and a little touch of hubris simply get the better of them. So it was for Icarus. You remember Icarus — his father was Daedalus, who, in Greek myth, fashioned wings out of feathers glued down with wax. Daedalus tells Icarus not to fly too close to the sun, but Icarus can't resist the temptation and, as the wax melts, crashes to his death in the sea. Brian Greene, the Columbia University physicist whose popular books have helped take the intimidation out of science for many readers, never felt entirely comfortable with that story.

Six years ago, at Catholic University in Washington, there was an unusual presentation of Giuseppe Verdi's monumental Requiem for soloists, chorus and orchestra. The last notes of the score gave way to very different music, coming softly from the choristers. As they filed off the stage and left the hall, they softly intoned a chant from the Kaddish of the Jewish liturgy. When those sounds, too, faded away, there was no applause from the audience. Only some muffled sobs could be heard in the darkened room.

Expanding its reach into other media platforms, The Sun has struck partnership agreements with WMAR and Maryland Public Television, and is discussing a similar deal with a TV sports programmer. The agreements will enable the organizations to share content and resources for online, print and broadcast stories and commentaries, and should increase the visibility of Sun reporters and columnists. "We're increasingly living in a multimedia world," Timothy A. Franklin, editor of The Sun, said yesterday, "and it's important that we have our journalists and our content on multiple stations so that we can maximize our exposure and get more eyeballs."
