Amazon used disability rights as a trojan horse, of sorts, to slip pro-Alexa policy into that bill.

I think it's more that certain people who enter their engagement with tech, eg my nephew, enter at a point where the option to use siri seems like the most natural, intituitive, easy, effective mode of interfacing.

Whereas your engagement with media predates tech, you have a system which works for you, that is easy and effective, there's no need of point to do it differently.

Neither system is more right than the other, they both achieve the final objective. It's just about the time element and when you got put in.

mostly agree, but the major difference between "my" system and your nephew's is Amazon, Apple or whoever doesn't have my personal information about whatever it is I've done.

Yeah that's very true Leo, also he doesn't care right now but might do soon.

Would be weird if eg dissensus was all voice.

In America, young people are scorned for such aversions. Its an aversion I feel mildly, my preference being textual communication.

people used to leave and listen to voice messages all the time, weird how the rise of digital has led us to not wanting to speak with or listen to people, never mind actually see them IRL. retracting behind the screen, text and emojis only, pls.

Yeah, being accustomed to having time to refine your message, curate the impression you make, etc.

All of that is infeasible in real time.

Not that I'm strictly advocating for non-real-time communication, it just has a different set of perks. I;m mainly trying to explain why it is a status quo, especially for younger generations.

"hi, it's linda. stan said he had a big but up with gus. they're both in hospital." see? know you don't need to film the fight scene.

on "law & order", the detectives at the victim's apartment crime scene always seemed to find messages left on the answering machine. great way to get a lead, but they used it so often that it was probably just lazy writers who wanted an easy way to introduce a suspect.

I was thinking about this a bit more.

Really one of the main problems with the Internet is that the business model is basically still based on advertising, which is an old revenue model, it's radio and TV.

Internet should be micropayments. If we all paid that few pence to follow a link, if you somehow got billed for it, there 2ould be no need for all the tracking.

None of the companies want to do it, but they can't make it pay in any other way.
