Thanks for reading Luke. Great points and good question. I especially like the point about going to say a friends house who has Alexa etc, where your control is limited. This will become more and more prevalent in public spaces as well.

I think we have made a trade-off for convenience that means we are trapped into some level of reduced privacy and at some level, there may not be a way back now that the genie is out of the bottle. But, I think this will spur a growing movement toward increased vigilance around privacy and security. That movement will probably include a combination of products and services aimed at specifically at privacy, tools to increase privacy/security literacy, government regulation, and — as I was suggesting — possibly a higher barrier to entry for new tech.
