Two years after John Travolta strutted down the street to the pumping Bee Gees bass line of "Stayin' Alive," a brick-size piece of technology gave the rest of us the power to do the same. It was 1979 - 25 years ago this month - when Sony started selling the Walkman, a device so iconic its name would come to stand for all personal, portable stereo devices, landing in dictionaries and often losing its uppercase "W." Sony gave people a way to move through life to the theme music of their choosing.

CDR (Compact Disc Recordable) and CDRW (rewritable CDR) aren't the only digital recording platforms out there. Sony has been doggedly promoting its MiniDisc (MD) for several years now, pegging it as the digital replacement for the cassette.MDs are about the size of a computer floppy disc, are read with a laser and use the same "burn" technology for recording as CDR machines.Although the sound quality isn't quite as high as CDs, the ruggedness of Walkman-size MD players has earned the format a small but growing market, particularly among active young people.

NEW YORK -- I was on a Peter Pan bus one recent rainy Friday night, making my way from New York to Baltimore to celebrate the centennial weekend of my undergraduate school, the College of Notre Dame of Maryland. I was listening to my Walkman, tired after a busy week and a trip that was taking longer than usual because of the rotten weather.Suddenly, a little blond boy of about 4 popped his head over the seat in front of me. The movie had ended and his mother was falling asleep beside him. He was tired of turning the light on and off and had decided to see what was going on behind him.Recognizing a bored child when I saw one. I offered him my headset.
