Would you eat at a restaurant if you found out the waiter insisted on peeing on your food? Answer, no. My guess is the losses to tech will be big. People don't want hacked devices, computers, and networks. Also, everyone is going to go computer security crazy and that is going to cost money and productivity. This is what happens when spy culture invades the lives of people. Get rid of these spies and get rid of them yesterday.
If there is a silver lining this could lead to whole new forms of computing. Open hardware, open/free software, incredibly unbreakable cryptography, quantum computers, free networks, new network protocols, new messaging protocols, etc... Not having math skills is like being a soldier without a gun. Not being able to code is like being naked.
