Q&A: MoveOn Board President Eli Pariser on his new book, The Filter Bubble

When we search for things on the Internet, a number of variables determine what we end up finding. Whether it's the configuration of our computers, the location, or our past search history, the information we get is filtered and changed to match our record. When these same algorithms start determining the news we see, things start to get messy and according to Eli Pariser's new book, The Filter Bubble, which he'll be reading from at Tattered Cover LoDo tonight, it starts to get dangerous.
