Oral History for the Web enabled age
by Eoin Purcell
I recently came across Evoca (via Techcrunch an awesome site). Not only is it a simply excellent and easy way to great audio content it also has an incredible offering of local history and oral history already on board.
For instance the Georgia Historical society has a page with some 18 clips so far. It also runs a Savannah Historic Preservation Project page to which people upload their thoughts, ideas and perspectives. The opportunities offered by this really simple technology roll out is impressive and while it’s not strictly book related or publishing related it is history related so I feel justified.
A site well worth visiting. I look forward to seeing more varied oral history content soon.
