The Walrus: How Algorithms Are Changing What We Read Online.

The Walrus: How Algorithms Are Changing What We Read Online.

I hate those articles that end up being sneakily horribly depressing. “LAST NOVEMBER, I stopped writing a regular column on art and culture for the Globe and Mail, my job for almost twenty years. Nobody noticed. I did not receive a single reader’s letter. I had a polite message from my section editor. He was sorry things didn’t work out and hoped we could stay in touch. The note contained no sense of symbolic occasion. I knew what I did was no longer important, either to the national culture or to the newspaper’s bottom line.”
