M. Ng, The technological trustworthy

S. D. Noam Cook

pp. 455-459

Joseph C. Pitt, based on his understanding of trust and of technology, makes the provocative argument that trusting technology is actually a matter of trusting people. I agree with Pitt's conclusion but differ with him on the nature of trust. I contend, nonetheless, that my understanding of trust actually reinforces Pitt's characterization of technology as "humanity at work."
