Mass Interactive: Life in the UK on October 17, 2006

The National Trust have created a blog because:

We want as many people as possible to record a ‘blog’ diary of this one day which will eventually be stored by the British Library as a permanent historical record of our national life.

This is a one off, one day diary done on a mass scale – that will itself make history and can be a resource for historians in the future.

This is a part of their History Matters campaign which:

is all about raising awareness of the importance of history in our everyday lives and encouraging involvement in heritage in England and Wales. Our goal is to build public support and interest in looking after our history and heritage - today and in the future.

I think this is a fascinating idea which ought to be at least as interesting as Postsecret and potentially much more useful to planners working in the UK. If they pull it off it will be a snapshot of the nation's psyche.

I wonder if they'll make the data available to download too? Hmmmm...
