Net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard great things about blogengine. net.
But the Echo's inadvertent intrusion into an intimate conversation is also a harbinger of a more fundamental shift in the relationship between human and machine. Alexa-and Siri and Cortana and all of the other virtual assistants that now populate our computers, phones, and living rooms-are just beginning to insinuate themselves, sometimes stealthily, sometimes overtly, and sometimes a tad creepily, into the rhythms of our daily lives.
As they grow smarter and more capable, they will routinely surprise us by making our lives easier, and we'll steadily become more reliant on them.
Even as many of us continue to treat these bots as toys and novelties, they are on their way to becoming our primary gateways to all sorts of goods, services, and information, both public and personal. When that happens, the Echo won't just be a cylinder in your kitchen that sometimes tells bad jokes. Alexa and virtual agents like it will be the prisms through which we interact with the online world. It's a job to which they will necessarily bring a set of biases and priorities, some subtler than others.
Some of those biases and priorities will reflect our own. Others, almost certainly, will not. Those vested interests might help to explain why they seem so eager to become our friends.
