#C2Xmas Day 2 – Samuel Pepys Diary

Day 2 of my Countdown to Xmas #C2Xmas continues here


Samuel Pepys lived in London in the 17th century and is most famous for the diary he kept for a decade as a young man which is considered to be one of the most important sources about the English Restoration period.


This site contains the full text of his diary, along with several letters sent or received by Pepys, plus thousands of pages of further information about the people, places and things in his world.

The diary entries were published on this site daily, in real time, from January 2003 until May 2012, with readers discussing events each day. From January 2013 the diary entries again appeared on the front page at the end of the day (London time), starting with 1 January 1660.

You don’t have to read it all in one go!  You can receive daily diary entries by email, RSS and/or follow it on Twitter

Providing a daily flow of content this way, is a great way to deliver what I call a continuous knowledge or learning flow. Is there some content you might provide in this format?

    I love the idea of continuous flow. Would this work as part as a change program? X days of [add topic of importance]. You’ve got something there!
