In this paper we use Levels of Abstraction and an object-oriented model of trust to analyze quantum computing and cloud computing to identify important ethical concerns. The method of Levels of Abstraction aids in identifying broad social concerns of both methods of computation. Both methods of computation have the potential to deeply impact societal trust of computing.
