"There's a scene in Terminator 2 where Sarah Connor realises that the machine may actually be the perfect father for her son. I don't have the exact quote to hand, but it's something like "He would always be patient, and never lose his temper." In this context, I just need to keep practicing the symbols over and over again until I get them right, and the program is happy for me to do that - it will keep prompting me for as long as I like, and it won't criticise me for getting any wrong answers. It tells me which answers were correct/incorrect, and gives me a score at the end of each test, but there's no sense that it's judging me."
Ooh, I really like this way of looking at it.
