Dabbling with Google’s New Timeline Search

Google timeline snapshotGoogle 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.

Such fun. I certainly hope timeline is a keeper.
