This is a personal project in which I downloaded, parsed, listened to, and physically indexed every one of my uses of Google's Voice Assistant technology. It is an attempt to get some insight into both the amount and type of metadata contained in these audio recordings, as well as an attempt at understanding the kinds of conclusions that could be drawn from it by people working on 'surveillance capitalism' products.

It consists of 698 annotated index cards and my full voice search audio archive.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
