1984 in 2018 – Weekly News Roundup

The Article

The groundbreaking book 1984 was not just about privacy invasion, but more about thought policing.  We have found some articles this week about that very trend!  In addition to our regular articles on privacy and business, we will also look at a new project analyzing twitter accounts for instances of hate…by none other than the Anti-Defamation League.  Of course, Facebook is putting up new polls to allow users to flag posts as ‘election interference’ but not to worry…the robotic snakes will climb the ladders to pluck us out of our crow’s nests…yep…1984 is coming…just a few decades late.

Catch these and more articles tonight.  Here is the lineup of articles:
