Written in my notes from Foo 2014

A quote I used in Dan Saffer’s session on smart devices using data collection to attempt predictions around what their users might want:

“Today’s devices blurt out the absolute truth as they know it. A smart device in the future might know when NOT to blurt out the truth.” – Genevieve Bell

Also got to point everyone there to Steffen Fiedler’s fantastic 2011 project “Instruments Of Politeness”
