WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Does the internet poison politics? It's been argued that the rise of "personalization," the use of algorithms to filter what you see online, and easy access to the like-minded, have served to reinforce our pre-conceptions. Is the information bubble a myth, or is it undermining civic discourse? Is the rise of social media really broadening our world views, or narrowing them? On the "for" side: Lawrence Lessig and Eli Pariser. On the "against" side: Evgeny Morozov and Jacob Weisberg.
