Tuesday TED Talk: The Filter Bubble

I’ll try to start a weekly post where I highlight a TED talk. This one is directly tied to how we curate our lives, and how the information we think we are getting online is actually extremely filtered to us individually.

Personally, Eli’s emphasis on the need for us to be presented with information which is troubling or which may present a different point of view, is absolutely crucial to how we cultivate our world views and our store of knowledge.

Discussion at Farnam Street.
