If you have a long memory, you may recall that I gave a plug to the Samuel Pepys Diary website - well here's another great use of the weblog idea, Franz Kafka's diaries. It doesn't have the same resonance as the Pepys site, because it doesn't try to correlate dates in the calendar in quite the same way, but it does highlight the enigmatic quality of every day life - so that new meanings flow from quite ordinary sentences and ordinary events.
