AIGA San Francisco
130 Sutter Street
When the internet first launched, many anticipated that it would change the way we connected to one another and information, and rightfully so. Yet the problem of the “filter bubble,” has become a critical topic of our times as our personally tailored queries show us what we like and things we agree with.
How do we create platforms that speak to individual users, without also isolating them? How do we work ourselves outside of filters and create more nuanced, multi-dimensional forms of engagement that don’t box us in? What does that look like and is it even possible?
We'll hear from Nick Lum, the founder of Read Across The Aisle, deemed a "fitbit for your filter bubble" and a project that helps people find news and perspectives that don’t appear in their algorithmically-curated social media feeds. His work has been covered by the New York Times, BBC and NPR.
