William Gibson on George Orwell

Posted by glasscastle on 26th June 2003

William Gibson (one of my faves) relates George Orwell (100th anniversary), Big Brother and 1984 to US Govt.’s Total (now Terrorist) Information Awareness.

“This outcome may be an inevitable result of the migration to cyberspace of everything that we do with information.” from “NY Times 6/25”

Quote of the Day

Posted by glasscastle on 26th June 2003

The big local Boston story today is Anna Gitlin,
a 25-year old woman who, trapped in a traffic jam and late for work,
rammed a cop
trying to redirect her.

"I don’t care who (expletive) died. I’m more important,” Gitlin twice
screamed in broken English.

Local outrage peaked when it came out Gitlin was Russian. Don’t you HATE
being late for work?

‘About 55 percent of users checked out one result only. More than 80 percent stopped after looking at “three results”.’
