Hmmm....again, some good things here, but much of this seems directed at business pitch-type presentations.  For example, this lists data-rich presentations as something you should avoid.  You need to FOCUS and EMPHASIZE data rich presentations.

Nobody likes being told that they suck, but that's how most of us feel when we receive criticism. However, not all of us deal with criticism the same way. Some people instantly know it's not personal, and some people are defensive.

Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, January 15, 7:53 PM

I like this study - although the title is a little "linkbaity" - it looks at how music has changed over the last 60 years through the lenses of :
1. Timbre - which is all about the tonal quality - how it actually sounds
2. Pitch - which looks at the dynamism of the track - harmonies, chords, melodies etc
3. Loudness - yes - just how loud the song is when you play it

And the results show that since 1955 - timbral variety decreased, pitch content decreased and loudness increased.

Shocker huh!?

I could speculate forever on the reasons behind this but I suspect the main culprits are economics and technology. But I'm an optimist and have no doubt once the humans assimilate the new electronic instruments that we'll begin to see an expansion of the first two again.
