5.0 out of 5 stars Heir to Sennett's Uses of Disorder, June 24, 2011
This review is from: The Filter Bubble: What the Internet Is Hiding from You (Hardcover)
Reference librarians today observe young students hitting the keys on a topic before they even begin to think about it. Some reference librarians themselves even behave this way. Carried far enough this work is a nightmare scenario. Pariser organizes and contexualizes search-and-retrieval phenomena most of us have been observing for many months now and postulates behavioral, psychological, and societal effects worthy of heightened awareness both in regard to their effect on our ability to think laterally and to fulfill our roles as citizens of a republic and community members of planet Earth. Sennett's book (1970)has implications for understanding the censorial mind. Those who know the history of fascism can probably carry the linkages further. Pariser's book is essential reading for those who treasure the promise and possibility of the Internet, for those with eyes for the forest . . . .
