Eli Pariser: Beware online "filter bubbles"

...because only interacting with people you think are "progressives" isn't getting us anywhere...

"We all want to be someone who has watched Rashomon, but right now we want to watch Ace Ventura for the fourth time"


I've done threads about how it is absolutely necessary for us to engage conservatives, but now that there's a TED talk, it's "valid." Cool.

Kinda sad how we need an authority ("a gatekeeper") to say something before we listen... or don't.

Of course there are people here that are so cool, that they post things like "I never watch TED talks unless they're banned."
