Filters draws its name from the idea that each person's perception of
reality is derived from a set of filters. These filters - one's senses,
the media, the government, a computer screen, a friend's opinion, etc.
- all dictate what is experienced.

Filters is a combination of views and ideas presented in a wide variety
of forms. Filters is a periodical that exists only in digital space
because digital space may be the most profound filter on our experience
since the industrial revolution began.

Filters chooses a theme each issue that acts as a springboard for
thoughts. We, the editors, encourage a meaningful exchange of ideas
about the current theme in the Editor's Email. The Blender is a mix of
various people's contributions to this project. 43 Degree Angle is an
editorial column written by Matt Rotter. Two articles are included in
each issue to allow Filters to define its own idea of the current theme.
The Treasure Chest is where we keep back issues of the periodical and
free downloads. Finally, we offer Hot Links, as a point of departure
from Filters.

The point of the project is to think seriously about the ways that our
filters affect us and the world in which we live. However, we also feel
that deep thought needs to be fun and entertaining, so have fun.
