TUNE IN HERE! A lively exchange: Sinan Aral and Eli Pariser
Sinan Aral and Eli Pariser have both spent quite a bit of time looking at the influence of social networks and the way that ideas, information and news flow within those networks, albeit from different perspectives. Next week, we’ll engage Eli and Sinan in a conversation about how personalization of the Internet impacts the information we consume online.
In the first of what we hope to be many live – and lively - exchanges between thought-provoking leaders in their fields who are pushing ideas forward and changing the world, we bring you this conversation, moderated by PopTech. We want to hear from you, too! Bring on your questions and comments for Sinan and Eli and join us here on the PopTech blog on Tuesday, June 28th at 1:00pm ET.
Information economist at New York University and PopTech 2010 Science Fellow, Sinan Aral concentrates his efforts on why behavior is contagious and how it spreads through social networks, affecting the way we think about almost anything - from commercial products to public health.
MoveOn.org Board president and PopTech 2010 presenter Eli Pariser recently published The Filter Bubble: What the Internet is Hiding from You in which he explores the implications of how the filter bubble, or an individualized information universe, created by algorithms tracking your social networks, purchase history, political views and more, can limit exposure to and exchange of new ideas.
