I’m sure anyone who’s on the internet more than 5 hours a day has seen/heard this TED presentation by former MoveOn.org Executive Director Eli Pariser based on his new book “The Filter Bubble: What the Internet is Hiding from You.” How is the search engine breaking down conversation by withholding information or tailoring searches based on past searches and interests? How is this a wedge in our ability to talk to one another, to be in community even when we disagree? How do we access new ideas? What kind of thought monopoly have we bought into to keep us stuck in our own opinions? Have we become (in Pariser’s words) “isolated in the web of one” – the new “thought police”?
