GLOSSARY

#1 In its original formulation, the bubble theory was first formulated in 2011 by Eli Pariser in his book The Filter Bubble: What the Internet is Hiding from You. In a nutshell, Pariser’s thesis is that since our opinions are formed on the internet we run the risk of being isolated from information that is not close to our cultural or ideological world (our bubble). […] A valid theory, but one that I would not limit to the internet. The truth is that each of us, internet or not, lives inside their own bubble, hanging out with people who think in a similar way, and with tastes that conform and attitudes that are compatible with ours. Living in our bubbles we believe that what we perceive as normal and shared represents the whole of reality – Stefano Mancuso, The Plant Nation, 2019
