From Robin Sloan and Matt Thompson, a glimpse into a worrisome future of media. A piece like this is exactly the kind of discussion-starter that we should be using in our media, social studies, advisory, English — take your pick — classes to ask kids to think about the world they will help to shape.

Yes, Google News and Amazon Recommendations and all the social networking software is cool… but where does it lead us? This piece asks the question… we all should be questioning our answers.
