Mark Zuckerberg Needs Help With the Voice of His Personal Home Assistant

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?

Today, 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.


Good point!


Actually, please.

Other suggestions, Mark ignored. Like that of CUNY 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.
