I think EM would count your post as user input = error. ;-)When was the last time you saw someone fail at door open input?
Also.. if almost all input is error.. how did we evolve from stone tools through to electric vehicles that have some form of self driving? That's a lot of not failed input over a short period of time in the earth's history!
I've got no problem with no door handles, or FSD if that is your thing. As much evolution as possible is great for optimization of life.. but his "ethos" is cherry picking which inputs are almost all error prone. Its overly dramatic. A simple.. "who doesn't love optimizing and ease of use?!" would do perfectly fine over calling the sum total of human history mostly error!
I think the real meaning is that whatever device that is created for a purpose, fails to achieve that purpose without user input, (if possible) has also failed the manufacturers intent and design.
For example, the user wants to travel from place to place. The manufacturer wants to facilitate that but requires you to first complete a survey and a disclaimer, instruct you on the operation of the vehicle, and to start the vehicle and put it in gear. MS Plaid knows you want to go somewhere when you get in the car, and knows it won't be getting far by driving over the curb or through a fence, so it chooses reverse first.
I suppose the key to the principal is the word "user". Not designer input etc.
