The filter bubble web is sneaking on us

by Jul 27, 2012English, TED, Video

I am very international because I have a server located in Germany, I live in Belgium and mostly work in the Netherlands.

I noticed that the internet is different in those countries. When I use my proxy in Germany I cannot see a lot of youtube video’s because a stupid Gema. Also google keeps coming back with the German language version of google, changing into not respecting my browser language settings or domain name I chose.

And when I am in Belgium I cannot see some Dutch public television programs like news because of some stupid Sport broadcasting rights and geoip policing.

This localized and filtered internet bubble is a big danger
