Big Brother is Still Watching You

George Orwell warned us it'd be this way.

In his novel 1984, Mr Orwell wrote about a future where people's every move was watched by two-way "telescreens" in their houses and cameras everywhere else.

Great Britain has 4.2 million closed circuit TV cameras around the country -- all connected to let the authorities keep a watch on potential crimes.

Some might call that a perfect example of Big Brother watching the people.

So just for grins, thisislondon.co.uk drew a 200 yard circle around Mr Orwell's old house in London. They found 32 cameras within it. (thisislondon)
