Wow – the Internet has changed a little since 1984. Here’s how you get email in the ’80’s: Check out the password. And the “software transmission” at the end of the broadcast. Psychadelic.

Algorithms lurk in every aspect of our lives. From those Facebook “quizzes” you take, to your application for “12-months-same-as-cash” credit, to your job application (wait – what?), there is a statistical analysis and math formula which analyzes YOU and makes a recommendation.
