excellent topic, but...,
This review is from: The Filter Bubble: What The Internet Is Hiding From You (Paperback)
The author spends 250 or so pages telling us how awful this new personalised internet is (which I agree with), but only 6 and a half pages on how to defend against it!
6.5 pages??!!! Are you kidding me? You think this is such a serious issue that your write a 250 page book but only make the effort to knock out 6.5 pages in the "what you can do" section?
The section on how to defend yourself contains no mention of:
Java script blocking
Pretty poor effort.

Well.. I don't know what your background is but every "IT person" will tell you that you can't defend yourself.
You can limit it to some extent but you will always be targeted.
I'll give you just one example to show you how this works.
You (and the book) mention Firefox. Did you know for a fact that 80% of Firefox's budget is money directly injected by Google? Yes interesting, isn't it?
