Timelines on the Web - Part VI - A Treasure Trove of Recent Graphs

Over the at Professor Mike Thoma's Economist's View, I have discovered a literal treasure trove of recent timeline graphics. My hat is off to Professor Thoma.

You can find this great assemblage at: Economist's View: Graphs.

Warning, this web page is about 8 MB and can take a while to load even on a high speed link.

However, if you are interested in seeing a wide range of examples of the ways different contributors on the web use graphics to present their points of view, this is a great place to start. Professor Thoma has included links back to the original postings where these graphs appeared to sites such as Angry Bear, Calculated Risk, Economist's View, Brad DeLong, Macroblog, New Economist, Econbrowser, The Big Picture, and Prudent Investor.

In total, there are over 300 pictures showing some of the most important metrics that impact our lives. For this collection, it's pretty clear than some bloggers are making good use of timeline graphics, can everyone else be far behind?

I plan on commenting on some of the best graphics in future post.

Thank you, Professor Thoma.
