I read something the other day that went like this: “Being human is the new black.” I think it’s true. Today, writing with a more personal style is almost expected.
This style is characteristic of the human-like voice of Siri, the digital personal assistant that comes with the iPhone. In an almost friendly way, she tries to understand questions and then proposes what you hope will be a helpful answer. Before responding, the voice says something reassuring like “Let me check on that” or “Let me think about that.” If the data isn’t available, she simply says, “I can’t answer that.”
