What's your Point of View when writing code

Apparently I take code as a collaboration with the system I'm writing the code for.  I was reviewing my comments in some code I'd written, and all the comments were written first person plural.  We, us, et cetera.  When I review other code or documentation, it's all third person, the system, the component, et cetera.  I'm also writing for my team, and the we/us includes them in the conversation, but the we/us in the head is me and the computer.

Does anyone else have the same feel for this?  Do you comments talk to others, yourself, or you and the computer system that's running it?
