I bought a book I didn’t read before. On the Internet. Paying a person I don’t personally know, based on his reputation only. Believing he would send me a paper copy of his words from a remote land I’ve never even visited. On the other hand he trusted me to write this review and gave me a discount for that very fact.
And yet everything worked out pretty well.
I transferred the money, got the book, read it and I’m writing the promised review right now.
How is that possible ? How do people trust each other in this “trust no one” place of the ‘nets? …
