A member of the Sursound list asks what market problem Ambisonics solves. I have my opinions.
But I know 1 problem that desperately needs a solution.
How to make sense of the endless tireless debating flying in all directions on lists.
Is there a product out there that can ‘order’ lists like the sursound list … in such a way that ‘conclusions’ can be easily derived, published and consulted? Maybe a group-ranking of list comments… or something more sophisticated.
There is something about the order of lists that incites people to have endless debates that sprout like cancerous mushrooms. I think it is the nature of email. At one of my workplaces, we had a policy that if you could not solve a disagreement in one or two emails, then take it off-line … go one-on-one.
Going one-on-one is not possible when you have 100 members spread all over the world. So email arguments sprout, with line by line parsing of the detractor’s positions on topics that dont deserve the attention.
Market opportunity … lists that draw conclusions.
