If you have watched the Season 3 of the comedy show Silicon Valley, you would definitely remember Russ Hanneman-the billionaire that “put a radio on the Internet”. Mr. Russ had a personal assistant parenting technology that managed all his parenting activities, the “mean ones” according to him (like asking his boy to switch off the TV), while he is only left with the affectionate ones (like bringing home ice cream).
