Pew Research Center, “Internet, Science & Tech,” 3.29.17

Cathy Davidson, founding director of the Futures Initiative at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York, said, “We’re in a spy vs. spy internet world where the faster that hackers and trolls attack, the faster companies (Mozilla, thank you!) plus for-profits come up with ways to protect against them and then the hackers develop new strategies against those protections, and so it goes. I don’t see that ending.
