This paper discusses the concept of trust and explains that it is rather simple and yet complex as well because it involves both emotion and logic. The paper also relates that society and business could not function without trust. As an example of the importance of trust in society, the paper discusses the Diebold voting system scandal of 2004. The paper also points out that the Internet is another area that involves trust in society. In this situation, Internet users must put a large amount of trust in companies such as Microsoft and Google.

From the Paper:

"At the same time, there are those who do not trust Google or technology of this type at all. Many will not use Google Mail for fear of their privacy being put into the hands of third parties. The Internet is difficult to trust because of the vast capabilities for negative when compared to the few positives; most people tend to trade security for convenience, but not all. Online banking, for example, is a great way to take care of errands from the comfort of one's home without having to make an extra stop on the way home from work or during an already jam-packed day."
