Just stumbled upon this link on my Twitter feed from the British Library. The Library, in collaboration with BBC Radio, has started The Listening Project, aimed at capturing snippets of conversations Brits are having, and preserving them for posterity. They hope to create a patchwork of conversations that illuminate what’s on the collective mind of the country. Once uploaded, a librarian tags the work, which gets fed into a massive database of clips. You can then browse through the tags and pop in on conversations to discover what our Transatlantic neighbors are gabbing about.
