"The Mass Observation movement
was founded by a group of 1930s' British intellectuals who believed the most revealing way to document an event was to document the peripheral activities surrounding it. The Mass Observers carried out their greatest project on May 12th, 1937, when they dispatched more than 200 observers throughout London to monitor the coronation of King George VI.
" This coming Tuesday, the folks at Januarythe20th.com
are attempting to create a day of Mass Observation in the United States.
