First World War Diaries

Diaries as blogs can work really well and they are one of my favourite examples
of using Web 2.0 technologies to bring to life documents that might otherwise be forgotten or limited to family readership only.

The Telegraph has an interesting article about the diary of Captain Alexander Stewart. This diary has been made available to download as an e-book and the Telegraph article has also allowed readers to share their own stories using the comments section online.

On the WWI theme, you might also be interested in this recent post on the JISC Digitisation Programme blog.

www.pepysdiary.com is an interesting experiment in diaries-as-blogs.

Thanks for this Richard, being in Scotland I particularly liked the cartoon in that post.
