    A few months ago, I saw Connie Willis speak about her new novel, set in World War II. She mentioned a source she used for her research, though for the life of me I cannot remember the name. Apparently, some research project had been paying Londoners of all sorts to keep a detailed diary of their everyday activities, things they were thinking about, and all the various mundane things people like to say are dumb about Twitter. Well, then the war broke out, and the blitz started, and nobody thought to tell these people to stop writing. The result is a pretty invaluable insight into life in London during the blitz. I can’t help but think that things like Twitter archives will yield similar insights 60 years from now.
