Google is astonishing. The latest wonder I happened across is their experimental timeline search.
They give some great examples on their intro page. The Civil Rights Movement particularly appealed to this Unitarian Universalist, though I can’t help but wonder if a UU wasn’t behind this set, since the first is Thomas Jefferson.
To do one of your own, all that’s required is adding “view:timeline” to a regular Google entry. Here are some of the timeline searches I tried.
- Star Trek
- World Wide Web
- Vanderbilt University
- Chocolate (Did you know that in 1519 Emperor Montezuma reportedly drank 50 or more portions daily?)
Such fun. I certainly hope timeline is a keeper.
