Gabriel Weinberg (<a href="http://dukgo.com">DuckDuckGo</a> founder) seems to have similar opinions on these matters.

Those new to the concept of filter bubbles might appreciate the <a href="http://dontbubble.us/">infographic from DuckDuckGo</a>, in addition to reviewing Pariser's TED talk. Anyone concerned about filter bubbles should also read <a href="http://www.gabrielweinberg.com/blog/2011/06/the-real-filter-bubble-debate.html">Weinberg's ideas</a> on the matter.

Most importantly, anyone who wants unfiltered search results (not to mention <a href="https://duckduckgo.com/about.html">less spam</a>, <a href="https://duckduckgo.com/goodies.html">more functionality</a>, and <a href="https://duckduckgo.com/privacy.html">no tracking of personal information</a>) should start using <a href="http://ddg.gg">DuckDuckGo</a> today.

Disclosure - I'm not affiliated with DDG, but I am as fan-boy as they come.

It's a little 'spammy' - but I wanted to provide quick access to DuckDuckGo's features and mantra. This way, anyone who is genuinely concerned by filter bubbles or information tracking has at least one avenue of escaping the bubble.

<a href="https://www.torproject.org/">Tor project</a> is another option (and more far-reaching than just search results. There's a great <a href="https://opensource.com/life/11/5/how-browse-anonymously-tor">article on browsing with Tor"</a> here on opensource.com via linux.com.
