Growing up, Mad magazine was a staple in my brother and my lives. My personal favorite was the Spy VS. Spy cartoon, where a pair of nearly identical spies, one in a black costume and one in a white, constantly execute each other’s demise. In one episode the white spy blows up the black and in the while the next, the reverse occurs. Seeing the latest reports of cyber hacking and assurances that measures were in place to ensure our privacy, it seems that we seem to be in a Spy vs. Spy reality. No matter how much we assure people that their information is safe, with the next breath we are detailing the amount of information that was hacked and lost. However, the victim, in this case, seems to be people’s faith in the protection of their information in this new Cold War. What happens when, like the spies, both messages destroy each other, as much as we claim to be safe we are also met with similar messages that our information is not safe? Perhaps we are embarking on a new strategy, one of Mutual Information Distrust.
