Big Goals
Interesting ideas -

>> We want to take the power of human language and apply that more pervasively to all the computing interfaces and computing interactions," 

That's a very tall order when one considers the vast, bvast scope of human language -- I assume he's not talking about one language, but language structures applied to computing interactions. 

It will take a long time to get to get it right, in multiple languages (not just English), and integration has to be perfect. 

I suspect he's overstated the goal, but time will tell
