Truth Ministry

:: It is becoming unprecedentedly difficult for anyone, anyone at all, to keep a secret.

In the age of the leak and the blog, of evidence extraction and link discovery, truths will either out or be outed, later if not sooner. This is something I would bring to the attention of every diplomat, politician and corporate leader: the future, eventually, will find you out. The future, wielding unimaginable tools of transparency, will have its way with you. In the end, you will be seen to have done that which you did.

The above excerpt is from William Gibson, writing in the NYTimes, brought to my attention some weeks ago by Derryl. It’s a fascinating observation written on the 100th anniversary of George Orwell’s birth, and a sad reflection on the state of privacy in the world. (Registration required for NYTimes.)

:: Ever get the feeling that life will never slow down, no matter what you do to change that? It’s a quiet, lovely July 2nd evening, the sun still shining despite the time being 9:53 MDT. The house is quiet after an activity- and family-filled weekend, my 50th birthday being the excuse for the gathering. Tonight I wanted to see 28 Days Later, but by 9:15 I was too exhausted. I want to slow down life, but life isn’t listening right now. (Speaking of 28 Days Later, watch the first six minutes of the movie right here. I can’t wait to see it.)
