The Filter Bubble
What the Internet is Hiding From You

Monday, June 13, 2011
2:45 p.m. - 4:15 p.m.

In The Filter Bubble, a clear, energetic, and incisive narrative, Eli Pariser shows how the personalization of the internet is affecting our relationships, our ideas, and even our democracy. Praised by the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, The Filter Bubble explains how the architecture of the internet is evolving to match our interests and filtering out information that might challenge our opinions. Pariser lays bare the algorithmic logic of search engines that have begun to return only the information they think we want to see -- and the hidden consequences of the way the internet works.
