September 12, 2020 :50: Lastpass, Kindle, and khan Academy, Oh My! : Quarantine Meeting #27

Hello to all tech fans out there!

Are you looking for entertainment and education? Then you have found the right podcast.

It was a great meeting and we had member show up that we haven’t seen in 10 years. I hope we can keep it up. At the same time we were missing some regulars, and I hope to see them next Saturday. If seeing is your thing, then you should check us out on YouTube. Otherwise, continue with this podcast and you can hear the audio from last saturday’s meet

Today we had a number of impromptu topics that I’ve tried to provide links for more reading.

Today’s meeting covered the following topic:

Podcast Recommendation: All-American: Tiger Woods

TV Recommendations: 60Minutes: Artificial intelligence is preserving our ability to converse with Holocaust survivors even after they die – HOLOGRAMS!!

The YouTube video is available at: https://youtu.be/3qEa8xISEds.

We are currently 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 and look for notifications when in doubt.

Reoccurring Themes:

NOTE #1: The Google Meet is scheduled on Google Calendar. If you want to be on that invitation, then provide me your Google account id. Also, provide your email address, or follow the appropriate accounts to see a reminder on the day of our meeting sent out by email, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and WordPress.

NOTE #2: 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. Without your support these things would not be possible.

Personalized intro by Vivi and myself.

Remember, you can always show your support by taking a moment to go on YouTube and iTunes to review, like, and subscribe. When you do this, it gives our efforts greater exposure. It is as valuable, and as appreciated, as any contribution to the work I’m doing. Thank you.

Can’t wait till next week!

Everyone take care and #techOn!
