Comments on Big Brother Now Watching George Orwell's House
Here's an added incentive to visit the house in which George Orwell wrote 1984 - something not mentioned in the guidebooks. (Read the complete story)

"wow. this tears it, im never going to England. ever. ive always kind of wanted to see the land of my immediate ancestors, but they're showing once again why we left in the first place: they dont know how to mind their own damn business."

""They've even exceeded BB in one area, giving watchers the opportunity to talk to you anywhere you might be by attaching speakers to CCTV cameras." The author obviously hasn't read 1984 because in the book the telescreen in almost every room is a two-way device and there are microphones and speakers hidden everywhere, even in the countryside."

"I was going to deny this, but you're right. I actually quoted the counterexample in the 'Baby Brother' article. There are only a few instances in which specific individuals are addressed; ordinarily, telescreens played mass propaganda. However, I don't think I like your tone, Nevermind, so I'm going to go back and alter the article - but leave your comment - so everyone wonders what you are complaining about. Can't you read? If Winston Smith can rewrite history, so can I."
