  2. As transaction cost economist Oliver Williamson has noted in his essays on "credible commitments," and as philosopher Hubert Dreyfus has emphasized in his book On the Internet, trust ultimately springs from mutual vulnerabilities of roughly equal size. The puzzle is how such vulnerabilities are allowed to occur. It seems they arise form necessity and a leap towards solving particular problems we face. Some amount of repeated games theory might also have useful contributions to the constructing a theory of trust.

    In the information economy, whether at the scale of a real village or a global internet village, equal-value information held by "trusting" parties can create networks of trust.

    Consider also, in the software world, the Apache model for giving Karma!

  3. Comment, about readng the paper tape - there is at least one company which does reading of old media/software their niche. They maintain both hardware and software so that when you bring in your whatever gadget with something written in ObscuroType 0.9, they can read it.

    This gets easier in an internet age, because finding niche service is much easier. The trick is that such information itself isn't on the web, and that makes more and more of a difference every day.
