Hi everyone! This is Sarah and Alyssa and we’ll be leading discussion this week. Here are our questions in preparation for Wednesday’s class.
- Is it a good thing for the average citizen that our web content is becoming controlled by algorithms? Why or why not?
- Can you prevent the web from “defining” who you are and trapping you in the You Loop? If you can prevent it, how?
- Why do we trust the web when it is uncontrollable?
