  33. Three laws of human design: based on Issac Asimov’s Three

    Laws of Robots en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Laws_of_Robotics
  34. An interface may not injure a human being or, through

    inaction, allow a human being to come to harm – harm is emotional. RULE 1
  35. An interface must obey orders given to it by human

 except where such orders would conflict with the first law – 
 it should just work. RULE 2
  36. An interface must protect its own existence as long as

    such a protection doesn’t conflict with the first or second law – it shouldn’t just vanish or disappear. RULE 3
  37. None
