Forgive me but today's post has nothing to do with luxury, art or fashion. As some of you may know, I'm a bit of history buff so when I read in The Guardian's Tech section this morning that the entire Winston Churchill archive had been digitised, I lost my focus.
The Internet can sometimes feel like a vast wasteland of trashy celebrity sites or a magnet for political wingnuts. When an invaluable source of reliable historical records such as this is suddenly made available to the world at large, it restores my faith in the Internet's potential for education and enlightenment. Churchill governed during one of the most tumultuous periods in recent history. His writings, views and decisions merit closer inspection by historians the world over. This project will make a difficult task that much easier. I don't know about you but this fills me with excitement.
