Many of us are familiar with George Orwell's book 1984. Its ideas of Big Brother, surveillance and doublespeak have become pervasive fears in our culture.
Orwell's Revenge is an alternate version of 1984. After seeing how history has actually played out, Huber's fiction describes how tools like the internet benefit people and change society for the better.
ORWELL'S REVENGE. THE 1984 PALIMPSEST George Orwell's 1984 and it's bleak vision of the future has long haunted the imagination. In a move which turns the computer against Orwell's own text, Peter Huber scanned all of Orwell's writings into a computer, using the machine to rewrite the book completely, using Orwell's own language.
