This week Mike and I discussed the concept of customized search engine and social media filtering in the context that it’s being discussed in Eli Pariser’s book The Filter Bubble: What The Internet is Hiding From You. In a grand experiment we searched three terms suggested by our Twitter followers: muskrat, umbrella and occidental. The results were… interesting.
We also discussed the impact of one day boycotts in light of WalMart’s recent victory in a gender discrimination case that was presided over in the Supreme Court and the total and complete immorality of remaking Footloose.
That last part might just be my opinion.
