why erotic life in hci
Why erotic life in HCI?
  • IT comes from the workplace and brings workplace values (efficiency)
  • Domestic computing does not question these values
  • Domestic computing does not reflect on the effects of technologies on erotic life
  • But technology has an effect
  • As old workplace values are not sufficient we will go back to Quality of Life as a basic quality.
  • Erotic life is widely recognized as an important aspect of life quality
