Eli Pariser and the filter bubble

It is hard to put into words just how dangerous this sort of sub rosa information filtering is, so hats off to Pariser (of Movon.org)  for at least trying to build awareness. Though what anyone can do, other than the obvious of unplugging from the vapidity of the Zuckerborg, is a big question. Try new browsers? [ed – try here]

The video is under 10 minutes and well worth the time. And hat tip to Robin Cangie, who almost wins me over from pessimism about our current state of affairs.
