Google 2084

A bit of "Op-Art" in today's NYTimes (don't call it an editorial cartoon!) depicts Google's home page on the centennial of Orwell's totalitarian dystopia. My favorite search functions are "Satellite Photos of People Spying On You" and "Other People's Conversations."

I hardly believe it will take 79 years to get to that point, though Google's own estimate is 300 years.
