A day in the life

by Ted Hoffman

I found this idea from the National Trust from a few days ago . People around the country were encouraged to upload their account of the 17th of October 2006 for the purposes of compiling together a "fascinating social history archive" of everyday life that would be stored for posterity in the British Library.

Not only is the possibility of decent information about 2006 daily life being lost forever miniscule; I suspect ill-conceived news group posts, local fun run finishing times and a whole heap of other crap will haunt Google long after we and the British Library are gone.
