A British blogger named Phil Gyford has launched a weblog serialization of Pepys’ Diary. If you are not familiar with Pepys, you’re missing out on some serious London intrigue circa 1660– not to mention a work that bears eloquent witness to the birth of modern subjectivity during the Enlightenment. It is amazing how fluidly content from a few centuries ago works as a weblog. It’s enough to make you wonder which of us bloggers will be revealed as indispensible to future generations– assuming any of our evanescent digital musings survive.
