A short story about fall detection in the new Apple Watch: Over a year ago, my mother -in-law suffered a fall and lost part of her memory. We don’t know how she fell or what she did over the 3 days that she was alone, just that her back was covered in bruises and she had a fractured skull. She’s recovered, but lost much of her sense of smell and taste. It could have been much, much worse. Fall detection could have ensured that she got immediate help. This feature will save lives.

Now that we’re all settled in here would you like to sign up for my newsletter and lecture series in which I advocate for an ideology of intellectualized self-service, bigotry, and hatred?

Well between animating avatars and Nazis, I guess I’ll take the animating avatars!
