A database, voice recognition system, and feedback
mechanism that would limit annoying vocal habits, world
wide. The annoyingness of the habits could be
crowdsourced or determined by the out-of-work staff of
the Encyclopedia Britanica. See linked list for vocal habits
for which it would be
possible to build a recognition
engine, that could then limit the utterance of via high
frequency sound, delayed playback, noise canceling or
other augmentation. Inside the system you would be
guaranteed peace of mind, and you would gain the
opportunity to build a magnified sensitivity to other
peoples and your own emotions. Outside the system you
would be free to be an asshole and to spend the rest of
your time building your insensitivity to other people's
assholishness, but of course you would be free.
