At AdWeek event, Guardian ed says NSA spying 'goes beyond Orwell's imagination'

The surveillance state capacity far outreaches anything detailed in George Orwell's novel 1984, said Alan Rusbridger, the Guardian's editor-in-chief, at an Advertising Week event in NYC. "Orwell could never have imagined anything as complete as this, this concept of scooping up everything all the time. This is something potentially astonishing about how life could be lived and the limitations on human freedom." []
