  3. Chloe Aridjis · At the HKW: Aby Warburg · LRB 5 November 2020

    Make a timeline thing, including maps, using Google Spreadsheets as the data source.

    Nice explorable timeline of different categories of things pulled from Wikipedia. A few annoying interface things, inevitably, but fascinating. (via Kottke)

    Rather nice multimedia timelines. Open source. Twitter Bootstrap aesthetic. (via Mildly Diverting)

  13. - Homepage

    Create your own (Flash-based) timelines. You know when you have an idea for a site and then you find something that sort of does it, but not quite how you wanted?

  14. Arab spring: an interactive timeline of Middle East protests | World news |

    This is nicer than my rash knee-jerk dislike of whizziness made me think. Works well as an overview and journey. There’s a bit of a disconnect between country names and events, and I want to see more time at once, but nice and clear otherwise. (via Max Gadney)

  15. The Pratfall of Penny Arcade - A Timeline

    I love catching up on drawn-out internet cultural events that are huge to a small number of people but of which I’m completely unaware. (via Waxy)

  16. Timeline twins, music and movies

    I keep thinking about this old post. I must be getting old. “Listening to Michael Jackson’s Thriller today is equivalent to listening to Elvis Presley’s first album (1956) at the time of Thriller’s release in 1982.”

  17. Grand Unified Timeline of Human History - Meta

    Sounds interesting, although I’m not quite sure what it is… A project to combine lots of existing timelines? An attempt to create a huge new timeline from scratch?

  18. Royal Society - Trailblazing

    A little thin in content so far, and overly flashy for me, and the original articles are all but hidden. But otherwise a good start on making this old material more accessible.

  19. Neuwanstein site - Primer Timeline

    For the wonderful and confusing movie ‘Primer’. Contains spoilers. (via Haddock)

  20. Exclusive: The Lego Minifig Timeline

    I think they started going downhill after 1986. Entirely coincidentally, that’s when I stopped buying them. (via Chris Heathcote)

  21. Financial crisis timeline | Business |

    Handy summary of the past month’s descent into madness. Ideal for someone who’s, say, been travelling through central Asia for four weeks…

    A history of different timelines. (via Kevin Kelly)

    A timeline “summarizing 13.7 billion years”. (via Cool Tools)

    I like timelines. One day I’ll draw a great big one on a very long wall. (via Kottke)

  25. Historischer Zollsstock

    2,000 years of history on a 2 metre folding timeline. £15 in the National Portrait Gallery shop. I like long-term timelines.

  26. Writers Dreamtools - Decades - 1650

    Guide to what was happening in different fields in consecutive decades through history. Good if you ignore that knowledge changes with geography and social position. (via Kottke)

    Create a timeline from an RSS feed. Not sure how useful it is, but might be interesting for something.
