How History Books Will Remember The Government Shut Down: A Masterpost

i never want this post to die

I miss this

I actually really really love things like this - documenting the documenting of recent history. Like somewhere I have this screenshot of Obama announcing the capture and death of bin Laden and the top comment is about the Play Station network being down. Like because of our weird interaction with history through the creation of this kind of documentation, we actually record all kinds of connections and things that would be otherwise lost.

And technology makes it so easy for decentralized voices to become part of the recording and collecting of that history.

It’s all very cool.
