Yesterday we talked about the concept of “infowhelm” and the struggle to evaluate credible information and personalize information while also avoiding “filter bubbles”.
Today i’d like you to research two articles on the web that deal with “infowhelm” and avoiding filter bubbles. Once you have gathered your articles, read them, analyze and respond in a new blog post. Articles should be from the past 5 years (2008-2012). Also, this search should not be a wikipedia page, but a credible source that you evaluated.
In your posts, make sure you link or cite your article when you reference it in each post.
1. Use “…” to focus your search
2. Use the Google sidebar to narrow your timeline, location search, etc.
In your posts, make sure you provide the link to each article. You should compare and contrast each piece and incorporate evidence and citations when necessary. Categorize this post as Web 2.0
Finally, comment on at least two blogs from the Web 2.0 classes. You can comment on a blog from a different class. The purpose of the comment should be to continue and evolve a conversation. A comment such as, “great post!” Or “I like your ideas!” Will not suffice.
