Reading the HN thread on trojaned Python libraries:

Computers are mediators.

They mediate.

That is, whatever "you" are "doing" on a computer ... isn't actually _you_ who is _doing_.

You aren't reading mail, surfing, writing, coding.

You are _using_ a mailer, browser, word processor, or text editor, which interprets both your inputs and content on disk, off the Net, or often, transiting both.

Everything you do is inter-mediated.

What do you trust?

At minute 12:20 he rocks and says:

"You are acting as an unpaid Research and Development department for silicon valley. Because if a startup here succeeds, it gets bought by Google or Facebook. If it fails, we pick up the bill."
