Nineteen Eighty-four

67 years ago today, George Orwell introduced us to Big Brother.   I'm pretty sure I read Nineteen Eighty-four in 1984 as a freshman in high school in my US Government class.  Because we were safely ensconced in 1984 already, I felt like we were probably safe.  Now, though, when I consider the customized ads that the internet provides and the "you might like this" from Amazon, I can't help but wonder if Big Brother might be spying on me through the Internet.
