Down the hole

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Lorraine Murphy, the author who spoke at last night's meeting of the Editors' Association of Canada B.C. branch, talked about a site called The Memory Hole.

The site "exists to preserve and spread material that is in danger of being lost, is hard to find, or is not widely known [...] material that exposes things that we're not supposed to know (or that we're supposed to forget)." Yes, it has a whiff of conspiracy-theorist paranoia to it, but there are fascinating things there nevertheless -- everything from supposed plans for American "Total Information Awareness" to people removing cigarettes from a photo of the Beatles for a poster.

It also links to some images ("This Is War") of what wars really do, but I won't link there directly because they are disturbing enough that you should probably have to click twice to see them.
