Finding Truth vs. Fiction Online

Happy Friday blog readers!

This week on Fall Through the Cracks Friday we bring you a fascinating (and somewhat frightening) video from Ted.com on seeking the truth in the torrent of information that is posted online every day (really every second). In the video, journalist Markham Nolan looks at how you can, with a little ingenuity, find “truth” online. A great quote from the video:

Truth is emotional, it’s fluid, and above all, it’s human. No matter how quick we get with computers, no matter how much information we have, you’ll never be able to remove the human from the truth-seeking exercise.

Warning: There is one instance of not safe for work language in the video.
