I am doing some research for an exam on Tuesday, and one of the questions is about whether the options to customize things like RSS feeds and readers is actually a good thing. For example, if we only read our rss feeds (of websites we choose because we like the content)- would most people ever look at anything outside of their own beliefs? Ie, if you only watched CNN all of your life, how would that change what you thought as compared to reading a variety? So this article by Cass R. Sunstein argues that we become more homogenous by reading the same content, because even if it is a social network most of the users have the same interests as us (and the outliers are ignored- called the echochamber effect).
Anyway, what are your thoughts? Do you think by creating a"Daily Me" can limit you (as far as what you might see)?
This is my google reader (not used that much). This is all the stuff Brady shares with me - he should comment and tell me what he thinks :)
