Esther's personal Liberty Alliance

I was happy to read the end of this sentence in Esther Dyson’s recent syndicated column: “I used [my mobile phone] not merely for voice calls, which you can (in theory) do from
anywhere, but for SMS (short message service) text messages, mostly
with my boyfriend, Eric.”  Hmmmm. Could Eric possibly be Esther’s co-author for the June issue of Release 1.0? 

As I know from working with her, Esther leads such a peripatetic life
that relationships must be difficult.  It’s nice to hear that
she’s seeing someone.  We can all use a soul mate.
