I need some help. This filter bubble idea is really eating away at me. The promise of open and direct communication with everyone or anyone at any moment gripped me with some excitement for many years. Having worked in digital advertising and in broadcasting for large portions of my professional life, I found the revolution … Continue reading Bubbles, filters, fakery and social limits
I was reminded of one of my early exchanges of views on arrival in the BBC this week.
