Is anybody still using Google+? I haven't checked in in a while, curious who's here.

It's an easier way to choose what to see, when, from whom. BTW, loved the book. Read it in fall 2012 and have been recommednig it since.

Shouldn't "MissRepresentation.org" replace "the media" with "our culture" to be more accurate?

And... how is this relevant to the filter bubble, Eli? Looks like it could continue keeping us within the bubble...

is it against the bubble or against the book? I'm hoping the latter. That shit needs to be stopped.

In fairness that graph is based on survey data from 6 years ago. Here's to hoping the U.S. has picked up a few percentage points since then.

Washington state has the most invasive snails. Alabama has lowest rate of alcohol abuse. Minnesota has highest autism rate. And other state-by-state tidbits of highs and lows. What does your state have?

"Members will be ‘moderated’ in one form or another only if they are shown to be maliciously harmful to the processes that rbutr has set up to achieve its mission statement. For example, repeatedly voting down (up) good (bad) arguments because they simply disagree with the conclusion" -- blog.rbutr.com/about-us

That doesn't sound like avoiding bubbles to me. It sounds like enforcing the opinions of the majority.

There's a lot of say about Google's new Search plus Inside Your World initiative. But one item that might not be apparent is that Google now lets you instantly toggle between personalized and generic search results. As soon as I saw this I wondered whether the Filter Bubble issue -- where some folks think that personalization restricts our worldview -- has been resolved. Here's my post on this, with the first reaction from Mr. Filter Bubble himself, +Eli Pariser. (I had the pleasure of being first to notify him.)

Save me, Google+, you're my only hope: I'm travelling tomorrow and need to have access to the last month's email from two accounts while I'm in the air. Simple, right? But I can't figure out how to make this actually work.

Offline Gmail doesn't reach back far enough in Chrome, and only works for one account at a time in Firefox. IMAP syncing programs don't seem to work because I have 20Gbytes of email in each account, and they aren't smart about the order. What am I missing? Presumably I'm not the only person with this problem...

Online organizer and disorganizer
Introduction
Eli is an early online organizer and the author of The Filter Bubble, published by Penguin Press in May 2011.

Shortly after the September 11th terror attacks, Eli created a website calling for a multilateral approach to fighting terrorism. In the following weeks, over half a million people from 192 countries signed on, and Eli rather unexpectedly became an online organizer.

The website merged with MoveOn.org in November of 2001, and Eli -– then 20 years old -- joined the group to direct its foreign policy campaigns. He led what the New York Times Magazine called the "mainstream arm of the peace movement" -- tripling MoveOn's member base in the process, demonstrating for the first time that large numbers of small donations could be mobilized through online engagement, and developing many of the practices that are now standard in the field of online organizing.

In 2004, Eli co-created the Bush in 30 Seconds online ad contest, the first of its kind, and became Executive Director of MoveOn. Under his leadership, MoveOn.org Political Action has grown to 5 million members and raised over $120 million from millions of small donors to support advocacy campaigns and political candidates –- helping Democrats reclaim the House and Senate in 2006. Eli focused MoveOn on online-to-offline organizing, developing phone-banking tools and precinct programs in 2004 and 2006 that laid the groundwork for Barack Obama’s remarkable campaign. MoveOn was one of the first major progressive organizations to endorse Obama for President in the presidential primary.

In 2008, Eli transitioned the Executive Director role at MoveOn to Justin Ruben and became President of MoveOn’s board.

Eli grew up in Lincolnville, Maine, and graduated summa cum laude in 2000 with a B.A. in Law, Politics, and Society from Simon's Rock College. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.
