요약
"Searching for Trust explores the intersection of trust, disinformation and blockchain technology in an age of heightened institutional and epistemic mistrust. The book adopts a unique archival theoretic lens to delve into how computational information processing has gradually supplanted traditional recordkeeping, putting at risk a centuries old tradition of the 'moral defence of the record' and replacing it with a dominant ethos of information processing efficiency. Lemieux argues that the focus on information processing efficiency over the defence of records against manipulation and corruption (the ancient task of the recordkeeper) has contributed to a diminution of the trustworthiness of information and a rise of disinformation, with attendant destabilization of the epistemic trust fabric of societies. Lemieux asks readers to consider the potential and limitations of blockchains, as the technological embodiment of the moral defence of the record and as means to restoring societal trust in an age of disinformation"--
