4 The Perception Of Change
There's so much we could all benefit if we evolve our new designs and product developments.
Editorial By J. Martins
As I always like to say: I know that I know nothing, but I'm always learning. (Plato would agree if he had said it) Unfortunately, in the life of a magazine editor I have long learned that there is never enough time to just study and learn. I strongly admire people who have devoted their whole career to study, research, and publish what they learned (many times combined with teaching). That's what I always like about attending conferences, where here and there you come across people and work that shake the foundations of our knowledge and understanding. That was the case recently, when I — together with our technical editor Jan Didden, and a good number of audioXpress authors — attended one of the opening sessions of the 154th Audio Engineering Society (AES) International Convention, held at Aalto University in Espoo, Helsinki, Finland, from May 13th through 15th.
