What was the short film on the SciFi series Exposure about a man who told his boring work gossip to the screen of big brother in a 1984 scenario?

How can I add a subtle Orwellian-1984 twist to male business attire for a themed event in three hours? I'll wear at least a button-down shirt and slacks, but I can go up to a full suit if that would help. [more inside]

Since every government in the world seeks information control to remain in power. The internet will eventually be tapped, censored, crippled, and/or blocked by every country. How can we fight against this, or rather, route around it? [more inside]

I recently read George Orwell's 1984 for the first time, and I was blown away by it! Can you recommend theses/essays/discussions that can be found on the web?

Were the 1984 Sarajevo Winter Olympics broadcast on tape delay in the United States? How can I figure out the TV schedule? Anecdotes of events you remember watching would help. [more inside]

Print is dead? I was watching Ghostbusters (1984) this weekend, and at one point the character Egon Spengler is asked a question, to which he responds: 'Print is dead." What is the earliest recorded use of this phrase?

I was sure I remembered that Geraldine Ferraro cried during the 1984 presidential election, and that the media made the event into a symbol of why women are too weak to hold national office, but now I can't find a headline or news article from that time that mentions her crying. Am I getting this mixed up with Pat Schroeder's famous breakdown when she dropped out?

I'm in the process of teaching 1984
by George Orwell and, as we near the end of Book Three and are shown the horrors of Room 101, the question always arises: why do we use the number 101 to designate an introduction to a subject? What is the origin?
