JO WITHERS: Goodbye Google

“Hey Google, close the blinds.”

“Hey Google, dim the lights.”

“Hey Google, start my favourite slow classics playlist.”

“Hey Google, send out all the last messages to friends and family from my draft box.”

“Hey Google, administer the anaesthetic and switch off the power to my ventilator.”

“Hey Google, Goodbye.”


Jo Withers worries that technology is getting out of hand and avoids it wherever possible. She is author of the middle-grade science-fiction novel “5 Simple Steps to Saving Planet Earth.”
