I realised after yesterday's blog that the territory of 'intimacy' is fundamental to everything that I'm doing regarding technology at the moment (learning design, personalisation, etc). I also realised that Janacek had been here before: his second quartet is subtitled 'intimate letters', supposedly letters to his lover at the time. So that was the starting for this improvisation. His music oscillates between public and private; so does mine. How can a letter be intimate? How can technology be intimate? Somehow it can... Maybe once again taking us to a point where direct communication about intimacy becomes more probable...
