It was only a matter of time before the dead started blogging. Go on, follow the link to Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog and see what the man is up to these days.
Personally, if someone can point me in the direction of Jules Verne's blog I'd greatly appreciate it. He seemed ahead of his time, perhaps he's been hosting a blog for the last 130 years or so. Though knowing him he's probably running it on a Babbage platform.
