4 Ways Voice Interaction Makes Us Better Marketers

Fresh from designing and deploying a new Alexa Skill, I am struck by three things: Designing for voice interaction requires a new set of skills and tools. It’s not as simple as “audio content.” Voice interaction is a relatively new behavior for which there are few real experts or templates to follow. The pressure to develop skills that people will actually use will make us better marketers.  To say that voice interaction will become big may be like saying the computer mouse would be big back ...

You might need to upgrade your WIFI router

My brother was having a ton of issues with his home WIFI network. One quick look and his 7 to 10-year-old WIFI router suggested he needed a new one. The number of packets we expected early generations of 802.11 wifi to push barely anticipated the huge amounts of internet traffic we currently sling around. Ten plus years later, a router that was perfectly fine for surfing early YouTube video and maaaaybe occasionally streaming a movie is no longer adequate. My brother is paying for a connection...

Alexa, why does the brave new world of AI have all the sexism of the old one?

Virtual assistants such as Google Home and Siri only encourage the attitude that women exist merely to aid men in getting on with more important things.When women are over-represented in the workforce, it tends be in industries of assistance – cleaning, nursing, secretarial work and, now, the world of virtual assistants.
