Orwell that ends well?

Much is being made of the fact that, were George Orwell still alive, the great writer would probably be blogging. I can’t help but feel the point is being missed. The great thing about Orwell was the way he used words, and I suspect he would have wanted people to be interested more in what he said than the medium in which he chose to express himself.

As a friend said to me last week, “I sometimes think that, if a meteor hit London and killed a million people, the fact that the news broke on Twitter would be the story, rather than that real human beings had died.”
