A lot of online selling

A recording of my blog post from November 29, 2019

Well today is a day where a lot of people are trying to sell me things online. My inbox had no less than 100 offers this morning for a wide variety of things. From guitars to sunglasses the deals are everywhere today. Google put a ton of them in the Spam folder today. The one thing I have noticed over the last 6 months is that the algorithm Google is using is getting pretty aggressive to deflect improper communications from hitting my inbox. I’m wondering if it is a false positive problem or if it is a problem based on the number of people submitting subscriptions they no longer want. That is an interesting world of online content management. The economics of attention deflection are very real. Some folks call it a bubble or an insulated curated world full of only a certain slice of content.
