No matter your individual position on the matter, faith is a powerful element of the human experience. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that computing intersects with the story of belief in many ways. Here, we explore computing as a medium for faith, as a ritual space, and as a technology that itself raises certain metaphysical issues. The Web extra at http://youtu.be/pX08oIUQG0s is an audio podcast of author Grady Booch reading his On Computing column, in which he explores computing as a medium for faith, as a ritual space, and as a technology that itself raises certain metaphysical issues.
