Turing Digital Archive: history of science online

One nice thing about the blogosphere is that events, places, etc., are often mentioned on more than one weblog. I saw a reference to the Turing Digital Archive a couple of days ago. Meant to capture it, but didn't. Today I see it in Open Access News and have another opportunity to comment here. Redundancy helps support communication systems.

Earlier this year Alan Turing's death day was noted on /. and here. Now we have access to more personal and professional material on one of the founders of computing science.

I wonder how many scholars (scientists and humanists) are keeping weblogs today? And will we have access to them in the future? I hope so.
