“Don’t assume it will make an ass out u and me…”
But when it comes to some things in this life I do assume – the Riders will be great every year, the Leafs will be good this year, and the internet is the same for you as it is for me.
In passing, I happened upon a tweet of Dean Shareski (@shareski) that linked to his blog contained this video:
The video really got me thinking about what exactly the internet was providing all of us, and if in fact the internet was discriminating among users as to what users had access to.
I guess I am the fool for thinking that the computer in my classroom at school would spit out the same search results as my computer at home with all variables being the same (search parameters and search engine). It is worrisome, that some student is not having an accurate picture painted of something as simple as the news because of where they live or because his or her parent is a “conservative.”
I guess I am the naive person who believed that the internet was the internet, the Riders would be great, and the Leafs would be good.
Okay, I can dream…can’t I?
Did you know this was going on with the internet? Is this real or some kind of conspiracy theory that I am buying…somebody help me out…maybe the Tooth Fairy can clarify for me…
What’s that you say…not real either????
