Algorithms Are Making Us Small Minded - http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/201612 ... all-minded

Different Americans are living in different versions of the same country

The consequences of living in our algorithm-enabled straight-jackets are not trivial. Intellectually and socially, we are paying a price.
Take, for example, the recent presidential election in the US. The stark political polarization became arguably more entrenched and increasingly evident here as the tendency of people to seek out confirmatory evidence to support their inherent beliefs or intuition became a self-reinforcing cycle.

You should have posted it

I am guilty of posting too much non-humor stuff and admit it. But I am doing my best to stay away from controversial political stuff as the country is extremely polarized now.
