Statebook: The Government's Social Networking

I've been directed to this spoof of Facebook by the Open Rights Group. It is a powerful way to get the message across of just what the Government is trying to do.

Watch out if Big Ben starts to strike 13 o'clock before the month is out.

"Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct; nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary."
