Long-held fears of an Orwellian surveillance society may appear to be finally materializing, but very differently than originally envisioned in science fiction. In particular, the originators of police-state intrusions and pervasive monitoring are now appearing overwhelmingly from commercial businesses rather than government agencies. Disturbing examples and current trends will be discussed and contrasted with expectations from the not-too-distant past. Audience discussion is encouraged.
