How Did Tom Tomorrow Know Yesterday? 20 years ago, a comic predicted what some are only finding out now...

Somewhere in my possession, is a cut out of a New Yorker comic from 1999 by Dan Perkins. He is better known as Tom Tomorrow, an independent cartoonist who pens This Modern World. That comic of a futuristic news report is here, by the way.

But even before that and before NSA-surveillance and Edward Snowden were household conversations, before "if you've got nothing to hide" became a common retort, Tom's comic below was published in Spin magazine - in 1994!
