The prediction: The Web means the end of Big Brother. - Columbia Journalism Review, 1995

Lawyer and researcher Peter Huber was a digital optimist. The increasing ease of communication in the Internet era, he predicted, would make it impossible for governments or corporations to control the flow of information.

"Orwell's world, the world of computer and communications monopolies, will not be seen again in our lifetime," Huber wrote. "The loose ends and the forgotten comers have taken over."
