In the grand tradition of crowdsourcing everything, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg took his personal page to ask the people a simple question: who should be the voice of Jarvis, the home assistant he’s currently developing?
Zuck posed this ambitious question to Facebook and beyond:
The Zuck has described the home assistant he’s currently building as “kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man”, hence the name. Here’s what Mark thought of your suggestions:
Is Mark really laughing, though?
“Great memory!” feels like a way to deflect this suggestion.
Other suggestions, Mark ignored. Like that of City University of New York journalism professor and identity-theft victim Jeff Jarvis, who happens to share a name with Mark’s lil’ AI baby.
Despite the Facebook founder’s radio silence on this one, Jarvis also posted a screenshot of Zuckerberg’s status on his Facebook page with the caption, “I’m warming up my voice now....” Sorry Jeff, don’t think you made the cut.
Anyways, I don’t know who you’ll end up choosing, but my friend Larry is in need of work right now and would, quite frankly, be perfect for the position.
