A seventeenth-century geo blogger

I love it when history meets technology. Enjoy this mashup from Google Maps Mania.

If you have ever wondered what Samuel Pepys’ seventeenth century diary would have looked like if he had owned a personal computer and an iphone then wonder no more.

Actor and web-designer, Phil Gyford has produced a blog of Pepys’s Diary in which the daily entries correspond to the 17th century original. What’s more Pepys’ entries have been geo-tagged as well so readers can quickly check any locations mentioned in the diaries on a Google Map.
