Alan Lomax — protoblogger

If he were a alive today, Alan Lomax would probably be a blogger. Here’s a bit of evidence: “Day of Infamy” recordings he collected, with the help of citizen journalists, of peoples’ reactions to Pearl Harbor (via MetaFilter).

The recordings, or I should say, the opinions of these “man on the street” responses are fascinating. It’s a pretty wide range of opinions, with a strong sense of isolationism and wish that leaders had worked out a peaceful resolution, and a few gung ho types ready to serve.
