Then I analysed these sounds one by one, and wrote down the frequencies which I found and the dynamic level of the partials of the spectra, in order to know what the sound is made of, what the sound is, as a matter of fact;

Risk lies in the future, not in the past, and risk management based on the study of history invariably is erroneous in the long-term. This is because history itself is only one sample from many alternative scenarios that could have happened, which distorts our estimates of the probability that an event may happen. But since we are part of that sample, it is very difficult for people to grasp this concept.
According to Schmidt–Cohen, the wired world (soon to be the entire world) has embarked on "the largest experiment involving anarchy in history." Now, I know a fair number of anarchists who would probably disagree with this sentiment, especially now that the internet resembles nothing less than a shopping district in which all the public space has been gobbled up by private management companies.... But if the authors mean "anarchy" as in "a state of society without government or law, where one can download The New Digital Era for free, without legally purchasing it through the Google Play store" then yes, sure. It's anarchy!
Building a social tool for “just us geeks” permanently privileges the few people who get in the door first, which means you’re giving a huge leg up to those who already have a pretty good set of advantages to begin with.
when you start at the beginning of this process and you found a problem that you want to fix, your understanding of it is fairly simple and so your solution is, too. Part of what's attracted to you at that stage is how obvious things seem because there is such a simple solution. That energizes you to go after it and solve the problem.
Of course, we do not act like rational automata. If we did, only the literally starving would choose to take out a "payday loan" at 2000 per cent interest. Instead, we guess, panic and follow whims, hormones or herds. Psychologists have long known how much other people affect our perceptions and behaviours.
The problem we all face is “The physical fallacy”. All of us, even those the social sciences, have an innate bias where we are happier fixing problems with stuff, rather than with psychological solutions – building faster trains rather than putting wifi on existing trains, to use my oft cited example. But as Benjamin Franklin (no mean decision scientist himself) remarked “There are two ways of... being happy: We must either diminish our wants or augment our means – either may do. The result is the same and it is for each man to decide for himself and to do that which happens to be easier.”
This test user was clearly irritated—even hostile—after accidentally closing Fruit Ninja.
the benefits of appealing to the creative class accrue largely to its members—and do little to make anyone else any better off.
The individuals have no plan. They obey no instructions. But with the right if-then rules, order emerges.
