This article talks about the future of the web as an ever intensifying personalized experience. It perpetuates to common view that the answer to data overload is a filtration system that narrows your choices by referring to your history.
My view is that this is where the investment will go but not where the future will emerge. When my past choices narrow my future opportunities, it creates a set of cul de sacs that are hard to navigate.
I think it more likely that models will emerge that combine filtering with novelty to produce an environment where active learning is the key to navigating.
