Touchscreens: A New Hope

About three months before Beatrix hatched, I wrote that I might have a disease I called “touchscreen HCI disorder.” She’s now three and I asked her to help me set up an initial vector for my Bumblebees talk. She started poking the screen on my laptop and, since it’s not a touchscreen, got frustrated when it didn’t work. Clearly, touchscreen HCI disorder is genetic.
