David Orban

This is a great story, reminiscent of Asimov's "Robbie".

Just as there are generations who were more at ease with the joystick than the console's controller, or those for whom the walkman is more familiar than the portable mp3 player, now there will be those among us who will have a hard time to adjust, while the ever-changing zeitgest of kids growing up is colored by the reassuring presence of domestic robots.

John Ballard

Love it!
I had to blog about it.

Danny O'Brien

It may be because her mother Quinn is doing so much robot research at the moment, but I've been surprised by how wide the range of things that Ada will (correctly) identify as a robot. She'll shout "robot!" as enthusiastically at your classical "robot man" image (and demand we draw one on her t-shirt) but she'll also do the same at pictures of a Roomba or one of those pile-of-PCBs-and-a-UV-sensor wheelies. I think she identifies "robot" as "animal made of plastic".

Reinder

Your plastic pal who's fun to be with!

Daniel H. Wilson

As a robotics person I love to hear stories like this. Hopefully the next generation of Americans won't be so afraid of robots. Now, I'll plug a book that people can read in the meantime... "How to Survive a Robot Uprising" is available for pre-order on Amazon... ha ha ha

Pam

thought you might find this funny

Andy King

You see this? This guy wrote an excellent article about tbe Long Tail Theory in Wired and now he writes whatever crap he comes up with and everybody praises him like Budda... wtf!

George

Cute story. We also have a Roomba in our household. The first time we let it run and then dock itself, our 4 year-old sat down on the floor next to it and stroked it's "back", talking to it as if it were a puppy. He has since learned that it doesn't actually respond to him like this, but he still considers it as more of a pet than an appliance. Perhaps it's time to get a Golden Retreiver for him...

Misty

I thought it was my ten month old's job to clean the floor of debris, by eating it. I foresee a dual between baby and Roomba. Let the betting begin.

Roomba

Wow. I love the roomba idea as a kid nany. I was hopeing to see a day when every one can buy a honda Asimo. But we have a roomba and it does work well at keep the floor cleans and the dogs on the couch. The problem is if you do not want the dogs on the couch...

Ashley Bowers

I am hoping to get one for Christmas I have dogs and I think it would help out alot on getting thigns up after they chew up stuff!

Mik

I think that would keep our grand kids amused,have to invest in one of those.

Fallows has an interesting column in the the NY Times about the power of that other low-cost P2P distribution network, the US Mail. He focuses mostly on the Netflix example (mentioning Long Tail implications) and then brings in others: "Consider Postal Service fulfillment of transactions made on the Internet. About two million prescriptions a day - roughly one-fifth of the total - are delivered by first-class mail. EBay's vendors list five million new items daily, and those that are sold ship mainly by mail. One Pitney Bowes study found that online retailers were increasingly using paper catalogs sent through the mail to steer people to their sites."

Lowering the economic costs of niches is key to the Long Tail, especially for small purchases such as a single track. I mentioned in the post on variable pricing that below $0.49/track the transaction costs of processing the payment can start to get in the way. So the news that PayPal is changing its policies to encourage smaller transaction is good to hear. From the report: "PayPal’s transaction fee is typically volume-based, and ranges from 1.9 to 2.9 percent in addition to a charge of $0.30 per transaction. In the case of [the new model for] micro payments, which PayPal describes as payments of less than $2, the fee is 5 percent plus $0.05 per transaction."
