Description

Continuing with our theme of non-business books about technology we dial the clock back to 1948, the year George Orwell wrote the prophetic book: 1984. Who hasn't heard that "Big Brother Is Watching" or that we live in a Orwellian Society. Yet these common phrases are taken from a book that many of us haven't read. So this month Chuck and Gunnar dive into the depths of 1984, where we learn the meaning to these words that are already in our lexicon. What we learn while reading this is a bit scary in how close Orwell was to predicting (and warning us about) the society we live in today.
