I recently noted that
datafication has a
Wikipedia article. This is another term for a phenomenon I usually speak
following Ritzer and Rescher. I figured I should start keeping a list of

In my twenty years of using speeching recognition I've had a number of setups.
I began at MIT's Accessibility Lab with discrete speech—articulating ... every ... single ... word ... discretely.
