„People can and do trust works produced by people they don’t know. The real world is still trying to figure out how Wikipedia works.“

—  Ward Cunningham, Crucible of Creativity (2005), Context: People can and do trust works produced by people they don’t know. The real world is still trying to figure out how Wikipedia works. A fantastic resource. Open source is produced by people that you can’t track down, but you can trust it in very deep ways. People can trust works by people they don’t know in this low communication cost environment.
