Why Technology Fails
Just in case you’ve wondered why your computer gets riddled with crap, here’s the reason: In the technology world, things move faster than you could ever possibly imagine. New products replace old ones faster and faster, so the older ones revise faster and faster to compete. It’s just not possible for humans to craft quality while they’re pressed to do it faster than they can think. Moore’s Law (Gordon Moore, the former CEO of Intel) states that technology advances enables the number of transistors on a microchip to double every eighteen months. However, what we’ve learned is that this number compounds itself continuously.
The rush makes tech so complex that we now know “tightly coupled systems” cause the flaws in them to affect every part of the system at light-speed. So, when a hacker finds a vulnerable point in a system, others find it at a faster speed than you might ever expect.
No wonder over 70 million people get hacked when there’s a minor weakness in one of the payment systems used by a business.
Now, here’s where it gets really interesting. One of our intelligence agencies, the NSA, has decreed that commercial systems permit them entry. Tech encryption, which would otherwise have kept your identity safe, cannot exclude the NSA. Unfortunately, the NSA’s hackers aren’t the brightest bulbs in the box. Russian hackers, Chinese hackers, Israeli hackers put ours to shame. So, if your identity information is available to the NSA, you can bet the house that it’s also available to the governments of other nations via their military hackers. Literally bet the house.
