Intimate Computing?
November/December 2004 (vol. 8 no. 6)
pp. 91-93

It is easy to think of devices that we carry with us everywhere, and which are our constant companions, as almost "intimates." But emerging practices worldwide suggest a more radical interpretation of intimacy might be needed--technology moving beyond traditional concerns with efficiency and into arenas such as family and interpersonal relationships, religion and devotional practices, sexual behaviors, medical well-being, and more.
