How to trust, whom to trust, digitally? 
When it comes to online security, being paranoid is no longer enough

If things continue as they are now, soon not even maintaining a healthy paranoia — a prerequisite today for online life — will be enough to keep your data secure. A new approach is called for as we barrel blindly toward our shared dark online destiny. The old tricks aren't working: A look at two common pieces of advice for safely traversing the internet wilds, and how quickly they have become outdated, helps to put things into perspective. Let's start with something as non-controversial as the old recommendation to use two-factor authentication (2FA). Two-factor authentication safeguards your online accounts with a second layer of protection, and is an absolute must these days. In its most common form, 2FA is a random number texted to your phone when you try to log into an online account. You need that number, plus your password, to get access. Pretty neat, right? There's just one problem: 2FA in its most common form is now completely busted. There's a known exploit in telephone signaling protocols that lets hackers redirect SMS messages to any phone they want. This is not just theoretical. As previously reported by the International Business Times, a group of hackers recently took advantage of this exploit to hijack 2FA text messages and drain individual bank accounts across Europe.

"If you remove the cost of the human driver from an on-demand trip, the cost goes down by perhaps three quarters. If you can also remove or reduce the cost of the insurance, once the accident rate has fallen, it goes down even further. So, autonomy is rocket-fuel for on-demand. This makes it much easier for many more people to dispense with a car, or only have one, or leave their car at home and take an on-demand ride for any given trip. "

Many Japanese who visited Gemany remark about the cities being so beautiful. If you ask why they think so, very few have an answer. If you point out the absence of power poles, see a flash of understanding bright their faces.
