Comments on Wavii Follows Your Selected News
SF writers have been fascinated with the idea of personalized news for a long time. (Read the complete story)

"1984 - If it can select news for you it can personalize censorship as well. Imagine a whole society run on a "need to know" basis. IIRC "The Tally Ho" village paper in The Prisoner was printed on demand."

"I didn't realize that The Prisoner used that idea - that would have been 1967, which is pretty early for the mainstream as far as that idea is concerned. I wonder if The Tally Ho was in fact edited to manipulate individual prisoners. I think you're right about censorship possibilities; one of the concerns that we all have about Internet control is that the big telcos will begin to use download speed to influence what links we click on.
