Learn About Algorithms – They're Steering Us Around the Web
 
Who or what is shaping your communication environment? How about algorithms, the mathematical computations that lead us around the web? Get a better understanding of them from a Columbia Journalism Review article, “Who’s afraid of a big bad algorithm?” It’s great for weekend reading.

“Good algorithms learn,” says the piece, “and they are constantly refining how they provide you information.” Gee, we should be grateful, shouldn’t we? Yeah, but understand them, too.
