Oral History of Oral Histories

Michaelangelo Matos pitched The Daily a feature on the oral history boom of the last few years. He had a cultural idea: it’s happening at the same time that blogs are making first-person writing so popular and accessible. After he sent his pitch, he thought, “I should have just pitched an oral history of the oral history. Somebody’s going to do it eventually.”  For full story click here and there is a link to Matos’ story.
