We present results from a qualitative study examining how Charismatic Pentecostals use Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) in São Paulo, Brazil.
This work contributes to the growing body of research that broadens Weiser’s vision by exploring technology use in novel and unfamiliar contexts. Our findings reveal how
“extreme” and non-rational beliefs frame users’ ICT
experiences. We argue that if ubicomp is to be global and
ubiquitous, accounting for alternative value systems is
necessary. We discuss the implications of our findings and
present issues the ubicomp community should consider
when imagining a future that includes users from parts of
the global south.
