Why Are Standards In Technology Important?

As the world simultaneously tackles health crises, social crises and economic crises, this might seem an impossible question to answer. I would argue that a major priority is to stay informed about the facts and different points of view with respect to the facts.

However, even this is hard to do when standards of reporting and journalism often seem non-existent. That word “standards” is really important. Without standards, everything becomes messy. We need to hold our governments to high standards just like we need to ensure the quality of our food and water reach hygiene standards.

In this regard, technology is no different. It too needs to be standards-centric. We also need to know that the right experts have inspected the quality of the source code. This means independent experts, not just those chosen and paid by the authors to assure the quality, security and reliability of the execution. So technology being open source helps a lot too.
