Yours vs. Mine

I’ve always used “Your” instead of “My,” when designing interfaces and I think Dustin Curtis has figured out some of the “why”:

After thinking about this stuff for a very long time, I’ve settled pretty firmly in the camp of thinking that interfaces should mimic social creatures, that they should have personalities, and that I should be communicating with the interface rather than the interface being an extension of myself.

Makes sense to me.
