Geeky Friday: Thinking Music and Creating White Noise

While researching ways to make life in cubicle farm more productive, I found a wiki page about "Good Thinking Music" with links to mp3 streams. Another page on the same site gives arguments against listening to music while trying to think. The geeky part of this all is one proposed method of creating white noise for unix/linux users:
  $ dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/audio # or /dev/dsp on Linux
