Borewell diaries

I was enthusiastic when the Orwell Diaries project started. It was a great idea–repost George Orwell’s diaries as if he was posting them live to the web through a 70 year time warp.

Today, I finally unsubscribed. The main thing I’ve learned is that George Orwell was an incredibly boring diarist, mostly concerned with detailing what the weather was like that day, and how many eggs his chickens had laid.
