Discussion Summary

Explorers at Eskaton Village Carmichael are introduced to the Amazon Echo and brainstorm about what such an artificial intelligence based device might do for them in their daily lives.

The group has many interesting ideas and comments - both pro and con - for what it might do, ranging from stock quotes and reminders to emergency calls. Some, however, are wary.
