The way this was written reminds me of Charlie Kaufman's voiceover monologues in Adaptation. Also, agreed about San Jose. 
@jmow @fmanjoo That seems to be addressed in The Information's story about SiriKit. Also, did anyone notice that Siri used to hail Uber cars and that feature has been pulled?
@tolmasky The people cited in that story would agree with you, which is why they pushed for daily improvements. What I’m trying to parse is whether Williamson's statement is true opposed to Dag's. I doubt it is.
As an early reviewer of the iPhone 4S, I definitely remember Siri working great at launch - especially when only about a dozen of us reviewers were grilling it with questions. It wasn't until a huge amount of people started using Siri that it had reliability problems. 
Good inside look at Siri by @theinformation  I’ll add that I heard members of the Siri team were surprised to learn - during the HomePod unveiling at WWDC 2017 - that HomePod would support sending an iMessage with Siri.
