My first puzzle was published in my high school newspaper in 2012, during my senior year. I built it on graph paper and I recall misspelling a word in the fill.

Now, users can opt out of letting Amazon listen to their recordings, but that's still a step shy of Apple, which announced that it would only review Siri audio snippets of users who opt in. I'd like to see Amazon match that policy to make it so nobody's recordings are listened to without their explicit, active consent.
