Technological Narcissism

Here is a scary talk by Ari Pariser about how Google and other "friendly" corporations are walling us away from the wider world and cocooning us in what they think we "want" to see...

It is really important that "friendly" technology doesn't blind us to what is in the wider world. We may not want to see the ugly side of reality, but being ignorant is not a good strategy. If you really want to live in a better world, you have to help clean up the mess around you. That means you have to be aware that there is a mess "out there".
