A server sits in a colocation facility, every few seconds bothered
by Web requests from viewing hosts around the world. The hostnames
of the visitors are cryptic representations of where the viewers
are and which ISP they are using. "Talking Hosts" uses
voice synthesis to speak the hostnames of visitors as they hit TheSync.Com
Web site. It is a stream of humanity, at once personal, yet scarily
unending. How many hundreds of thousands have passed through? How
many more will come?
