Touch Me!

I came across this computer terminal in the Chicago airport the other day. It said:

They could have designed it to say "Click Here To Start" or "Press To Begin." Using the word touch is much more engaging. And of course what really clinched it is the word me. It's not just a dumb terminal. It's something with an identity. It's a me, not an it.

Did I? How could I not...?

wow, you're easy. As artificial intelligence grows, you're really going to have to learn to say "no" to a robot wanting you to do things!
