Domesday Reloaded Project opens at Bletchley Park (UK)

The BBC's Domesday Project has been made into an interactive 'touchtable' now on display at The National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park. Visitors can zoom in on any part of the UK and see multimedia submitted in both the eighties and in 2011. Over one million people contributed to what is regarded as a pioneering experiment in crowd-sourcing. The wealth of content on offer includes TV news reports, photographs and written accounts by local people, all of which can now be accessed using a 52-inch multi-touch screen. The original Domesday Project was launched by the BBC in 1986 to coincide with the 900th anniversary of the original Domesday Book
