Foreshadowing and DNA

Posted on Wed 30 July 2008 in general

It seems oddly appropriate that on the day it's reported that keeping the DNA of innocent people criminalises them that George Orwells diaries are to be released. In a thoroughly modern approach the diaries will come out in "real time" + 70 years in blog form. You can find the blog here, rss feeds and all. I reckon it will be an interesting read and I wonder what sort of parallels we will notice given the writings are on the run up to WWII.
