Here’s a link, courtesy of TED talks, about the way our online world is structured, and filtered, perhaps to our detriment. Online filtering of search results has real implications for information-seeking – if results aren’t structured to show the full universe of information, how can you be sure what you’re seeing is accurate? Current? The right answer?
Luckily, there are librarians to help you navigate the web and find good information, filters or no. 🙂
