analogy: language as a format for information processing, both internally in brains and between people

ubiquitous computing is extention of information processing capabilities. Why turn it off?

Do people wish to turn of the language formatted thoughts in favor of a pre-language, emotive version?

just an analogy.

Arguably some of the most primal and important we do socially do not involve language (emotionally and physcially intimate things -- hugs, kisses, simple touch) Language gets in the way, or is completely secondary. Shouldn't computing-related interactions be the same?
