December 8, 2020 :11: Suzi The Dancing Robot : Quarantine Meeting #40

Hello Clubbers!

I hope you’re all having a good week. We had a great conversation in our last meeting. It’s always so special to have members bringing their own contributions to the discussion. Please, keep it up.

In consideration our topics without ‘article links’ I have put links to selections from the Youtube version of this meeting. Now you go directly to that part of the discussion in the video.

I hope you enjoy this installment of our club and remember that you are welcome to join us at the next meeting.
Take care and #techOn!

Your friendly neighborhood tech guy,
Scott Stimson, head-Nerd at International Computer Solutions (internationalcs.net)

Reoccurring Themes

Our meeting’s YouTube video is available at: https://youtu.be/yLd0iW-LXkU.

We have returned to Tuesday meetings at a new start time of 10:00am. We will continue our virtual format with online meetings in Google Meet for the foreseeable future.

Currently, we are using the Google Meet code: [rgb-rrgc-gqp] for our weekly meeting. This code will probably be the same for next meeting. Check our blog sccClub.org for notifications when in doubt.

The Google Meet is scheduled on Google Calendar. If you want to be on that calendar invitation, then provide me your Google account id. Also, provide me with your email address, or follow the appropriate accounts to see a reminder sent out by email, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and WordPress on the day of our meeting.

A CHALLENGE: Can you design a phrase or dialog to trigger and execute a smart speaker commands, while masquerading as conversation? #speakerhacker – Any command execution counts, for example: play a song, get the weather, turn on/off a light. The goal is to covertly execute the command with conversation. We’ll play with our speakers and check back in next week. (see article: Uncovered: 1,000 phrases that incorrectly trigger Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant.)

Special thanks to all of you that have been helping in my endeavors. The things I am doing would not be possible without your support.

Remember, you can always show your support by taking a moment to go on YouTube and iTunes to review, like, and subscribe. When you give our efforts greater exposure it is appreciated as a contribution. Thank you for all your support.

I am always looking forward to our next meeting. Feel free to ‘prep me’ ahead of time with any topics you would enjoy discussing.
