Shannon Jacobs Posted over 2 years ago What is your New Year's resolution? Yes, I'm also fighting against censorship by the big banana, the google itself. Of course I'm losing and you'll never hear about it. The google just tweaks the ranking vectors, and you are disappeared. One interesting book on the topic is called "The Filter Bubble", but again, you're unlikely to hear about it if'n the google can do anything to keep you from noticing. The underlying problem is that there is too much information available, and your input channels can easily be saturated. Since most people prefer to hear they are right, they tend to steer away from disagreeable evidence of their mistakes and errors. People tend to believe what they want to believe, but I'm something of a weirdo in that I'm extra skeptical of evidence that agrees with me... As regards the Nick Hanauer talk, it is available elsewhere, and it is more relevant and INTERESTING than it was at that time. They are about to drop the austerity bomb on ALL of us.
