Phil 5.1.16

  • I have Supporting Reflective Public Thought with ConsiderIt for homework, but it’s worth adding to the Lit review
    • ConsiderIt is still around. It’s looking pretty nice, actually. Not much in the way of backlinks though (https___consider).
    • I like the inclusion of Nudge Theory. It’s an important point that design that affects masses of people has to take this basic consideration to heart. I contend that nudging is happening now, towards fragmentation and Group Polarization. The forces that drive advertising (and through association, content) to ever more targeted audiences means that each of these audiences can be nudged in different directions without knowing that they are even part of the group that is polarizing.
