I think that the editing of the internet isn't needed, I'm not saying that there doesn't need to be any revisions to the internet to make it better. But we don't need to have the internet edited in what we can and can't search and see.

This TED talk brought up a very good point, today's internet is sheltered and cutting us off from what's going on in the world. These days the news websites are filtering what we see and how we see things. This could very well lead to people making wrong assumptions or decisions on what to learn about. So I think Eli Pariser brought up a really good point and it's good that he actually uncovered this for us to see. If I didn't watch this TED talk I wouldn't have noticed the filtering that's going on so I think that this was very beneficial to me.

I had no idea that what we search is different from what everyone else searches. This was a great ted talk. I think that people should be more connected and there should be no algorithmic gatekeeper.

      I thought that it was a very informative talk on how the internet decides what to advertise when your online by looking at what you have searched up in the past. It was also interesting how most internet sites track everything you do online and offline with your computer.

I think this was a good talk because the internet really is giving different people different search results when they search for something. If two people search the same thing, they will most likely get different results. I, personally, think that is not good.
