"Intimacy requires a certain amount of transparency and reflection and the time to employ both. Intimacy requires a period for evaluation, consideration, and an accounting of those who wish to be intimate. If anything, we are not intimate with our software though software's involvement in our private and sensitive information increases and deepens daily. We are not intimate with the very thing that is most intimate with our identities and existence in cyberspace. We cannot touch software, we cannot evaluate it, we cannot even seem to control it. Yet it touches us, evaluates us in a myriad of different algorithms, and determines what we can and cannot do from the simplest mouse movement to trying to print a document. The angst and unease created by this asymmetry of intimacy becomes more and more apparent, yet we feel inexorably pulled forward by the momentum and speed of technology adoption" (2008, pp. 136 – 137).
