Happy Birthday George Orwell

To celebrate the birthday of George Orwell (real name Eric Arthur Blair), two Dutch artists are putting party hats on CCTV cameras. I love it. It reminds us just how much of Orwell’s dystopian future described in ’1984′ has come to pass. The man was ahead of his time in more ways than just one novel, or even two if you throw in ‘Animal Farm’. Read his essays and think about what he is saying; it is so relevant to our society today.
