I have a friend in Canada who doesn't trust technology. For years we've discussed this over the Internet -- the standard communications platform for people who want to argue at great length, across great distances, to no apparent benefit or conclusion. His idea is that since he didn't design and build the tech himself, he can't really trust it. But my idea is that in discussing this over the Internet with me, he is trusting it.
The Internet, after all, is really an unimaginably complex ‘system of systems’ comprised of switches, routers, microprocessors, storage arrays, networking protocols, various transmission media including fiber and copper and radio waves, and other elements ad infinitum. All of them interoperate to deliver holistic value for users.
If any one of these elements were fundamentally untrustworthy, so, too, would be the Internet as a whole, and our argument could not continue. But year after year, it does continue... which would seem to endorse the tech.
