Do you wanna celebrate Mr. Orwell’s birthday too? Tomorrow, June 25th is George Orwell’s birthday. Bits of Freedom has created a few easy to download/print/DIY party hats that you can put on surveillance cameras. Lol. The party hat tradition started two years ago when Dutch art duo Thomas voor ‘t Hekke and Bas van Oerle posted this picture on the web, congratulating Mr. Orwell:

As you might know if you follow my other blog, I’m very interested in internet freedom & (online) privacy. I try to work as an volunteer for Bits of Freedom when I can, and one of the things I’d like to do is spread the awareness. I’d recommend you read George Orwell’s 1984 if you haven’t – it’s a must if you’re into big brother is watching you stuff :). I found a cheap copy of the paperback here (only €3,57 and free shipping!).
