WEEKEND ROUND-UP: FORGETTING, REMEMBERING



TIMESLIPS STORYTELLING: An NBC news story about the TimeSlips storytelling project for seniors with dementia. Check out my summer 2010 podcast interview with project coordinator Anne Basting, who also wrote the book "Forget Memory: Creating Better Lives for People With Dementia." 

TWEETING WORLD WAR II: A New York Times story about a young Oxford grad named Alwyn Collinson who recently started tweeting the history of World War II, starting with an account of Hitler's invasion of Poland -- about 72 years to the hour after the actual event. The Twitter feed is called RealTimeWWII.
