Utne: The Daily Me (Promo) Anjula Razdan

This story from Utne suggests news sites should be wary of personalization at the expense of diverse viewpoints:


“...the very fabric of our democracy, which is dependent upon multiple voices and a range of common ground, could be at stake. Creating a “Daily Me” and engaging in cyber-discussion only with like-minded people, he says, might breed an excessive clubbiness, ignorance of and perhaps contempt for opposing opinions, and, in some cases, even violence.”
It’s an important thought. Providing a mechanism for random viewpoints, topics and voices on a news site makes sense and is consistent with news organizations pledge to serve an informed democracy.

Not a problem, personalization and social software are things I’ve been thinking about lately.  Thanks for fixing the links!

I think people who are close-minded filter out stuff they don’t want to see anyways, with software or not.
