Privind înapoi cu nostalgie

I will agree on blogging being fodder for future social historians. I have a background in history and archaeology and one thing that we constantly bemoan is the way that emails will change how we research. Currently if you're writing a biography about, say, the founder of the University of Whatever, and he lived 125 years ago, we use letters (if we can find them) to flesh out his personality. We also use diaries. Deleted emails are going to make the first source very problematic, but blogs may satisfy the second.
