Alexa, shut up!

Alexa, shut up!

The other night I asked my home device Alexa to wake me up in the morning.  It also gave me the option of waking up to music which I thought was a pretty neat trick, so I allowed it.  The next morning I awoke to Bon Jovi blasting out of the machine.  Due to the loud volume level, my vocal attempts to silence Alexa went unheeded.  I had to shout "Alexa," turn off!  Later, it reminded me of how kids (and adults too), can't receive much in the way of input if constantly giving output.  The real trick is to listen twice as much as we talk, so the information can flow in the proper direction.  We want Alexa to shut up so it can work, there's a lesson for all of us too surely.
