Does anyone watch TED talks?
I love these. If you are unfamiliar, TED talks are recorded speeches on a variety of topics – entertainment, design, philosophy, science, music – you name it. The information is presented as a story and delivered by incredible storytellers.
Below is a talk I recently came across that questions the personalization of the Internet.
When we look at websites, buy products, and read news articles our preferences are captured, and search engines like Google use an algorithm to determine what other products and information you might like.
The potential problem there is that Google is then deciding for you what information you should be getting.
This speech asks: Are personalized filters throwing off our information diet?
Watch. Enjoy. Go to the TED website for more.
