Early Adopters Read Shit That Doesn't Fit Their Reality

This is a really important talk on how reality is being shape by Google and Facebook algorithms. I'm very uneasy that my Facebook Stream is only loaded with people who agree with me (and there's not many of them either) but there was a time when I got exposure to new ideas and counter opinions. Not any more and I wonder if that means the internet is becoming a pajama party so much so that real life becomes a disorienting experience when people disagree with our views. This is actually a long an fascinating topic on how reality is painted and I suspect there's a glimmer of the good is being facilitated more than the bad, but not in a way that allows the good to deal with the bad when it is encountered.
