@Tryphon I'm ignorant of the hand-wringing you speak of, but this sounds like you want a technical solution to a social problem...
People (and trust) are highly subjective and they change over time.
The people you trust with your life today, may be your bitter divorces of tomorrow. The network security guru may also be a rapist "in his spare time."
The idea that some sort of computer system could tell us who to trust strikes me as not only impossible, but actively dangerous to attempt.
Capitalism in a nutshell:
1. Invest all money in businesses that exploit natural resources (the environment/people) in an unquenchable, shortsighted & illogical thirst for perpetual growth within a closed system.
2. When ramifications become visible, blame the people forced to patronise those businesses due to lack of alternatives for being irresponsible in their personal consumption choices.
Rinse and repeat until we all die because we’ve destroyed our habitat.
So, how’s your week going? :)

I liked the movie despite problematic mainstreamism. A surprising side effect was a bout of deep mourning for so many friends lost in the 80s/90s to that wicked disease.
Speaking of next level shit... To save the sound of Stradivarius violins forever, they brought in master luthiers, and recorded every note one at a time. Every transition. Every sound you could make. And now there's a database so one could craft new music with Stradivarius violins without owning one.
But the truly next level shit in here is that they shut down and put the cone of silence down around the recording studio so the street noise wouldn't fuck with the recordings.
