Buzzfeed's new 'Outside Your Bubble' is a disaster in the making
My major problem is that this assumption is incorrect. People are aware of the opinions of others. Between the news and social media, the only way to not hear from other people on the internet is to not be on the internet.

In my experience, people understand that other opinions exist, and what the opinions are. What people don’t understand is where the opinions come from, and they don’t care to find out for themselves. That’s where BuzzFeed’s module falls short at best, and contributes to the problem at worst.

Deciphering the Text Foundations of Traveller
n the science fiction game Traveller, players take on the roles of wandering interstellar adventurers who are willing to take on dangerous and/or illegal jobs for pay. The genre sources for Traveller (now known as “Classic Traveller” or “CT” for short) are as obscured as a medieval palimpsest, yet a careful sifting through the evidence reveals the hidden roots, which in turn point to the pathways of genre evolution from 1965 to 2001.
