Re: Technology and Coping
In a message dated 97-06-15 23:17:51 EDT, you write:
<< I'd offer the caveat that "noise cancellation" is not necessarily the same
as insulating ourselves from noise. If someone comes up with a device to be
mounted beside a heat pump, and the device cancels the noise produced by
that heat pump, then that _is_ dealing with noise at the source in the best
possible way -- the householder gets to have a heat pump, and the rest of
us get what we want too. >>
Will someone explain this to me?
How can noise be "cancelled"?
