George Orwell On Facebook

, , 1 Comment

The arguments for and against briefer forms of digital communication are a bit of a dead horse, so there’s no need to rehash. I saw this image last year, and thought it’d be worth re-posting (if anyone can offer up the initial source, I’d love to credit them here–let me know in the comments section).

What makes it interesting, for me anyway, is the inclusion of this form of communication into a larger macro pattern, and tying it to a kind of prescience from Orwell so many years ago.
