More blogging from the past.

Following George Orwell’s blog, and the Twitter-ing of Félix Fénéon’s “Novels in Three Lines” from 1906 (great stuff, have a look), is The Times of London with their Times Archive Blog.  They pick randomly from two centuries of newspapers for something of interest, give you a little background, and then they link you directly to the original newspaper piece.  (via.) I love this, and hopefully it’s a trend that others will follow.

On a related note, as my daughter is becoming a Girl Scout, I am obliged to take part in selling cookies, nuts, and magazine subscriptions.  I can also buy, and now I’ve got the perfect excuse to pony up for the long-desired Harper’s subscription.  Thank you, Girl Scouts of America!
