Big Brother Travels Through Time

Hey, fellow blog readers! In case you missed the story on NPR, I want to let you know that you can now read George Orwell's diaries in blog form.

An organization called The Orwell Prize is posting the diary entries, in real time, exactly 70 years after they were written. The diary begins being about his domestic life and then starting in September, the writings (the political diaries) will reflect Mr. Orwell's observations of events leading up to and into World War II.

I, for one, will be watching.
