Link: The Language of Interfaces.
I really enjoyed this article. The first piece of it is an article and the second is a slide show, so if you want to see the whole thing, click on the double forward triangle when you get to the slides. It's a funny combination of marketing advice and linguistic anthropology, referencing both the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis and products like Google Wave. I enjoyed seeing the whole thing. It will really attune you to the language you see here on the internet and may get you thinking about the language you use in stories as well.
