Could you make history while blogging? Well you could if you take part in perhaps the worlds biggest blog called 'One Day in History'. For one day only (17th October 2006) you will be able to post your blog entry for that day. The idea being to capture a snapshot of life which forms part of our history. I'm particularly interested to see how many professional technical people will take part. Imagine posting your typical day where you are installing software off media such as CD's and DVD's and in the future what people may think as these forms of software installation become outdated. I think that the more trivial, mundane, day-to-day the content of the post contains the more interesting it will be in the future. Often key events, discoveries and people are very well documented in history, but it's the attention to detail, it's the actually knowing what happened on that day that will be the most revealing.I already know how mine is going to start because in a strange quirk of fate I will be in-the-office attending a team meeting, now trust me it doesn't get any more mundane than that, but I'll be able to look back in later years and think to myself.... 'Was I really doing that back then??' So go on be a part of history... Remember one day only. The 17th October 2006. You know you want to.. I know you do.. Don't you? I bet you do!
