The digital world is increasingly pervasive, both in historical research and in daily life. Consulting a Wikipedia entry, updating your Facebook profile, or accessing an archive on the internet are gestures that have become part of the routine of actions of every day life.

Establishing to what extent the historical narrative will come out changed by these actions, is one of the challenges historians will have to face in the coming decades.
