Remember: copywriting is interface design

I had a pretty tragic laptop incident last week, and I am still migrating data from my old, severely damaged hard drive to my new laptop.

Wanted to check back into my Flickr account today - which I had created a while ago via my Yahoo! account (or so I thought). Anyway, I probably either couldn’t find the right password or the right login, and ended up facing this rather contradictory injunction:

Should it be different… or can it be different (implying it definitely could be identical).

Remember: copywriting is interface design!
