Tools For Treason
Our rights are extended and limited by the tools we use. The Internet has magnified our capability for free speech, but has pared down the reasonable expectation of privacy. And we, of course, have volunteered our data unreservedly at every turn. Even when we got burned, we kept coming back to give more. I suppose we did it because we trusted those to whom we were giving it, though they have almost without exception lost that trust now. And any trust they do regain must always be provisional, apparently, so why bother with it at all?
It seems that if we are to start over again, the founding principle of our tools for communication cannot be the establishment of trust, but the impossibility of trust.
