It could have been funny two months ago (April 1), and if were
the first time this turned up.
Crackpot nonsense from the same Abadie Joris, Kihli Guillaume,
Pierre Jocelyn (and I wouldn't be surprised if these three turned
out to be one and the same person) who wrote the following gem,
claiming that the concept of 'frequency' is completely misguided:
"De l'observation si nous prenons un son et que nous le plaçons
à l'intérieur de ses fronts montants et de ses fronts descendants
un plateau sans modifier les durées, nous ne modifions pas les
fréquences mais nous faisons pourtant bien varier les sons."
where you can read more similar nonsense)
In plain English: if you hard clip a signal its frequency doesn't
change but the sound does, so the concept of frequency must be
wrong. That is 'The Third Law about Sound'. I'm still trying to
grok the first two.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
