This is a great picture.
Do you think that you missed out on conversations in the recording or the recording missed out on conversations you heard because of attention? Do you think that because you had decided to pay more attention to specific conversations, that you missed some of the others that the recorder picked up? Or conversely, that you were paying so much attention to a slightly farther away conversation, that was just out of the recorder's field of perception, but you heard it because you were trying harder to?
The way the recorder doesn't pick up the same things that you do is particularly interesting in this case. Would you elaborate more on the conversation you missed in the recording? Where those blind spot issues in the case of the recorder, or do you think that was due to the inherent limitations in recording? You raise some good issues when you talk about the fact that certain conversations only appear in the memory of one or the other, and I think that's something that you should go deeper into!
