I’ve just finished Orwell’s 1984. It will take a while, I think, for me to shake it’s effect. 1984 is one of those rare works of fiction that changes the way you look at the world. Today, I thought about the workers in my office who have the same radio station, playing the same songs over and over again, day in day out, and it made me think of Big Brother. Mind control. It’s everywhere (not to sound paranoid, though).
