Inventors are lucky if they create many inventions through their lifetime. Barry Blesser has done that. In 1960s he along with a colleague at MIT converted analog sound into digital sound and put it on a computer, thus enabling all of the digital audio technologies we experience today. Barry is also a philosopher. He describes his philosophical outlook as “plasticity” nothing is inevitable. He joins me in a Skype video interview to discuss his philosophy and how he interprets the world in which we live in. How sound affects the way we live and how different types of minds have different types of strengths. How commercial interests force us to categorize natural occurrences into medical diagnoses. Barry Blesser Author, Inventor, Philosopher, University Professor and gentle human being.
