The Anti-Mac User Interface.

From MeFi:

We are not proposing, however, what AI researchers would call a "natural language interface." It seems a computer that can hold a normal conversation with the user will remain in the realm of science fiction for some time yet, and we are interested in computer-human interfaces for the near future. Instead, we have in mind something more like the interfaces of text-based adventure games, with their understanding of synonyms, relatively simple syntax, and tolerance for error in the input - a pidgin language for computers. The critical research question is, "How can we capture many of the advantages of natural language input without having to solve the 'AI-Complete' problem of natural language understanding?"

This is going to be one of those whiny, self-indulgent, self-aggrandizing, egotistical posts that I simply loathe reading when they're written by other people, and can only barely stand writing about myself without pulling out a gun and shooting myself in the brainstem for being such a pretentious, self-righteous fuck-tard.
