The author reflects on people in the broadcast industries. He considers these people the worst communicators. Increasing complexity of work has been reported as the reason for increasing distance between people. He emphasizes careful labeling and logging due to the isolated working of expert people within an everincreasing sound chain that may cause a lot of errors. He criticizes tackling of sound material by untrained people. He suggests to make limited use of the increased dynamic range.
