Guided Reading

I despair sometimes of the walled garden mentality of the modern interweb. Another day, another organisation banging on about the 'safety' of operating within a walled garden (would link, but it's just bollocks.)

Wasn't this form of the Invisible Hand suppose to have been removed with the freedom of the modern interweb?

Along with the walled garden twaddle talk comes 'portals' and 'one-stop shops.' You just know that 'engagement' is going to follow in the next sentence.

The modern interweb is all about choice. If I'm reading your news story then I want to then go and seek out an alternative view. Staying within the confines of your walled garden restrictions is just one step away from censorship.

Who is writing this story? Are they being paid for the copy? If so, by whom? What is the agenda?

You won't find these answers if you aren't allowed to leave the prim and proper sterile world of your crappy portal.

Plus anyone that describes ANYTHING online as a 'one stop shop' probably owns five pairs of chinos and nothing else.

Give me choice.

If not then I will decide to look elsewhere for my impartial information.
