Host Bradley Metrock (CEO, Score Publishing) interviews Melissa Campbell, Communications Manager for Campaign For A Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC). The conversation centers on Melissa's recent article for FORTUNE: "Parents, Stay Away From Echo Dot Kids," exploring several viewpoints expressed in the piece. Listeners should read it first. The article is available here: http://fortune.com/2018/05/15/amazon-echo-dot-kids-data-privacy/) This candid conversation captures the child advocate perspective that this technology is not necessary for modern childhood, and perhaps should even be avoided, while being challenged by the notion that voice-first technology represents the next generation of computing, and thus children will only be hurt by not being allowed to participate in this revolution and be exposed to the tech.
