Welcome to my place!

Audio Resource Jan Didden

It's great to have you here!

This place is where I talk about my personal projects, interests and whatnot. Not necessarily related to audio, although it often is. Under the Musings button you'll find things related to perception and conciousness which of course are very much applicable to audio!

My library lists lots of (historic) audio papers and studies that I personally find important to understand many different issues in audio.

I also have collected the interviews I've done with audio luminaries. Take some time to read and digest them - there are very interesting and worthwhile gems in each of them! My projects however is audio stuff - things I designed, wrote articles about, and my personal system. Comments and remarks are always welcome!

Last but surely not least, let me mention my publication Linear Audio. Published twice per year, over 200 pages of technical audio related articles from international authors. Article abstracts and author bio's can be read at the website, and some articles are available for free online.

So, take a look around, explore the various areas and let me know what you think!

The Age of Empathy

The Age of Empathy: Nature's Lessons for a Kinder Society by Frans de Waal. The 9th work by Dutch-born Frans de Waal, now Professor (and a few other titles) at Yerkes National Primates Research Center in Atlanta: The Age of Empathy - Nature's Lessons for a Kinder Society. Selected as one of the 100 most influential people by Time in 2007, Frans' work can be characterized as explaining altruism and empathy from a Darwinian perspective. Fascinating, to say the least, and very encouraging for our species' future. Recommended!
