"Error messages punish people for not behaving like machines. 
It is time we let people behave like people. When a problem 
arises, we should call it machine error, not human error:

the machine was designed wrong, demanding that we conform 
to its peculiar requirements. It is time to design and build 
machines that conform to our requirements. 

Stop confronting us: Collaborate with us."
