Let’s take it out of investors’ hands and put it in the public’s.Let's Own PG&ERuud MediaListening to #BBCTechConf on algorithmic recommendations with my human-computer interaction head on, I wonder if we're talking about a move from distributed cognition https://t.co/hO9tbnfL6j to delegated cognition?
