Link of the Week: Here is Today
Chances are you’ve heard someone say, “I’ve had a long day.” But how long is one day, in the grand scheme of things? This week, we found a website that helps answer that very question.
Here is Today is an interactive timeline that allows you to see today in relation to this year, this century, this millenium, the ages of the earth and the universe, and other temporal milestones. Like any good design, it takes a potentially difficult task––looking at today from a historical perspective––and uses visuals to make it easier. Through its ingenious visualization, Here is Today gives us a fresh way of thinking about our days––and about time in general.
