In case you haven't heard, today is Noise Awareness Day. The health, enjoyment and safety aspects of noise are the focus of Noise Awareness rather than such things as The Art of Noise, which are arguably something good.
I dislike noise in any form: RF noise, acoustic noise, visual noise and even social noise are things I avoid if I can.
Speaking of the noise - the problem kind - we have Herb Singleton's Cross-Spectrum Labs to thank for noise measurements at traffic intersections and other public and industrial places that help municipalities, infrastructure and others be good neighbors. Here is a shot of Herb Singleton, just out of the Speed Graphic camera done today at Soundwave Research.
