I'm recently smith schuster. Peanut i'm francis wade and i'm mark l. Wicks welcome gentlemen and welcome to our listeners. To this episode today we are going to be talking about voice productivity and before the show started we were talking about other things and arthur c. clarke came up in. I thought it was really interesting. So i'm i'm going to start off with this. Which is arthur c. clarke as the british science fiction author and he had these three laws That he talked about of course his third laws most known. But i thought it was interesting for a start off with kind of the other two. Which is the first law of clark. Is that when a distinguished but elderly scientists states that something is possible. He's almost certainly right when he states that something is impossible. He is very probably wrong. Number two is the only way of discovering. The limits of possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible. Great for saint science fiction writer And then his third law which is his most well known law and the one that i want us to kind of Kickoff from is any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. It really conjured up something really interesting about voice productivity. Which is that just a few hundred years. There are people who would have you know kind of been burned at the stake as as sorcerers and witches and whatnot for some of the things that we can now do without ever physically touching anything and it's just remarkable that voice productivity has taken us there. We have this ability to use audio both for input output to be more productive. And i just. I find it very fascinating. And i'm looking forward to this discussion.
