sandmansister: (Dr. Horrible - WHAT?)
It's an increasingly valid and important question. TED Talks are brilliant, and this video by MoveOn.org's Eli Pariser is no exception: http://www.ted.com/talks/eli_pariser_beware_online_filter_bubbles.html

From the TED Talks site:
As web companies strive to tailor their services (including news and search results) to our personal tastes, there's a dangerous unintended consequence: We get trapped in a "filter bubble" and don't get exposed to information that could challenge or broaden our worldview. Eli Pariser argues powerfully that this will ultimately prove to be bad for us and bad for democracy.


It's 9 minutes worth watching. Do it! Get informed. Get involved. Spread the word.

Sharing outrage in the form of this article originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] rougewench. It clearly illustrates why it's important to look at non-domestic news sources to ensure that we get an accurate picture. Corporations have compromised the integrity of reporting; we cannot afford to base our opinions, our decisions solely on tainted sources of information.

sandmansister: (Tick - facepalm)
Apparently, a glass of wine a day helps cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy. Dangit! Why didn't I see this 6 weeks ago?!?!?

I wonder if the benefits are retroactive. Hmmmmm...
