Starting August 9th, the Orwell Prize will serialize George Orwell’s diary, publishing each entry 70 years to the day after it was originally written. The topics are likely to be wide ranging from day-to-day domestic observations of his chickens to the political thoughts that would inform his best known work. As the diaries span four years, we should gain a deep insight into the man’s life and perspective. I’ve added the Orwell Diaries to my set of RSS feeds and cannot wait to read his entry from August 9th, 1938.
This is where the value, the absolute heart of the Internet shows through.
