Blogging with a 90-year time lag

Harry Lamin, a British soldier in WW1, wrote letters back to his family at home. Now, exactly 90 years on, his grandson is publishing them as a blog, in real time. It’s been quiet for a couple of weeks because letters only come occasionally and the last one was on Dec 30th, 1917.

Now… as then, of course… nobody knows if he’s still alive.

It’s a brilliant idea. More information on CNN.
