Security and Trust

I like the observations about security and trust at Comments from Bob Frankston, David Reed, Dan Bricklin, and othersHumans gain trust by interacting and “getting to know” people. Transparent technologies that make it easy to see what people and companies are up to (in a sense the opposite of firewalls) are what help me trust. I like Reagan’s saying: “trust, but verify”. It implies that trust requires means for openness, not firewalls and secretiveness.
