British Library to store ‘blog’ of lives of Britons

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 10:41 pm

The details of a day in the lives of hundreds of thousands of Britons will reportedly be recorded and compiled into a digital time capsule that will be stored permanently at the British Library.

The “One Day in History” project, described as a “blog for the national record,” will feature British celebrities such as actors Stephen Fry and Derek Jacobi, and the writer Bill Bryson contributing to the compilation, along with any Briton with access to the Internet who wants to participate, The Sunday Times reported.

Students and teachers at 29,000 schools have also been invited to join in the project, along with pupils at the Dubai British School, who will blog about expatriate life in the Middle East. Any Briton who logs on to the website www.historymatters.co.uk can also submit their own contribution.
