Trust is accelerated in the virtual world.
We hail a ride from a stranger.
We swipe to go out with a stranger.
We buy into non-existing products on the promise of what they could become.
Our trust in the platform imbues the trust into the users.
These platforms are now the gatekeepers of our trust.
We believe in the power of technology.
The rate in which we trust one another is rapidly accelerated.
Trust begins with people, but is empowered by technology.
But do we trust our technologies…
Or even more so, can we trust the gatekeepers of such technology?
