An email snapshot of the UK
The BBC report that the British Library are running a project during May to capture a snapshot of the UK through email.
The library is asking everyone in the UK to forward an e-mail from their inbox or sent mail box representing their life or interests. Alternatively, people can submit a specially-composed message.
Emails should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As an aside, I note that a Google search for this story (first heard on BBC Radio 4 this morning) turned up coverage by the BBC and the Guardian, but nothing on the British Library Web site :-(.
