SEVERE TIRE DAMAGE IN SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE

"PARC employs anthropologists to study the workplace, making the think tank something of a high-tech oddball. So is Mark Weiser. Besides his day job as a Silicon Valley savant,he moonlights drumming for a rock band called Severe Tire Damage. Probably he is rock's smartest drummer. He is ebullient about Severe Tire Damage. He is ebullient about computers. In fact, he is generally ebullient.

-- "We're going to have computers coming out of the woodwork", by Richard Wolkomir, Smithsonian Magazine, page 84, September 1994.
