Already off to a great start with @voicelunch:

"How do we know that's @BrianRoemmele and not"
"Well, that's the point!" Image
64 people and climbing. And we're just getting started. Image
"We go to voice when we want to get it quickly, authoritatively, and have it acted upon." -- @BrianRoemmele Image
"We're all in cybernetics, not AI."

"The upside of the 'soft sciences' is understanding how people will work with computing devices."

(We're up to 90 people, as an aside.) Image
Why build a personal archive when most pictures are never looked at again?
"To create a personal context" Image
- Data (abundance of this)
- Information (google)
- Knowledge
- Insight
- Wisdom (lack of this)

"HumanOS has a bandwidth problem"
"When you have too much information, you are left to pattern matching."
-- @BrianRoemmele

(as an aside - this is why I don't sketchnote) Image
"What do we really want? Something that will answer our internal [personal] questions."

"You don't want to know how many cars there are between here and there. You want to hear if you'll get to your destination on time."

and you want to hear it in the way that you like. Image
"Disfluencies [coughs, ahems] as a notification as part of the personality of the agent."

This is one of the things that I've liked the notion of since I first saw @BrianRoemmele mention it. Image
"We needed Alexa to get things started, but we're at a dead end."
The companies that will learn and build from this are here now. Image
"As we get hyper-contextual, with all that in the cloud, it will be used against us."
"We will have the power of that computer with us."

This is one of those places where I don't completely agree with @BrianRoemmele, although I fully understand (and agree with) his take. Image
"We signed up for reality."

I think this is why I'm not a huge fan of AR/VR (and was a big fan of Glass), and @BrianRoemmele expressed that well. AR/VR has a place and a use - they need to supplement reality, not replace it.

And I think #VoiceFirst is the more important focus Image
"Text is an archival medium, not a communication medium."

(We're still going with @BrianRoemmele!) Image
"I want the humility that I am wrong sometimes, and that everyone is wrong sometimes."
"I want the technology that will lift all of us up - and not tear us down. A social contract."
-- @BrianRoemmele

(Still going after 110 minutes, tho we're down to just 35 participants.) Image
(And a Glasshole dig right then? aww... man... @BrianRoemmele...)
"We have to overcome this itch to know everything about everything. That's data, not wisdom."
-- @BrianRoemmele Image
After 128 minutes, @voicelunch with @BrianRoemmele concludes with this final reminder:

"You know how to build this stuff. You're experts at communication. Empower yourself." Image
