    This is an interesting list Leisa.

    I wonder if you have seen the new timeline from Google…

    I was pretty impressed with it. I think Jakob has even made favourable noises about it.

    Cheers

    hey Carl,

    actually, I *had* seen the Google Finance timeline but for some reason didn’t think of it in the context of a timeline (just as a means of presenting financial information). You’re right though, it’s an excellent example. (Going straight to the delicious account!)

    thanks for that!

    Hi Leisa,
    Another interactive timeline that is pretty cool is the slider on measuremap.
