Blogger Scott Gilbertson comments on Tim Berners-Lee’s announcement of the World Wide Web Foundation and about its similarities to George Orwell’s Ministry of Truth…

“Knowing who to believe and what is true is hardly a new problem and
certainly not one unique to the internet. Information is messy,
complex, opinionated and often true and false inside a single phrase.
It’s something we’ve managed to live with for thousands of years and
something I suspect we can continue to cope with for thousands more.”
