Matt Jones is collecting timelines. Some additions:
- Edgar Governo, Historian of Things That Never Were. Includes, amongst others, a scarily detailed Twin Peaks timeline and a Transformers chronology (and another, more detailed but less comprehensive). (Ooh, and it also links to the Dictionary of Imaginary Places.)
- WhoWhatWhen, interactive historical timelines (I think it was Matt Jones who mooted, at one point, the whole of human history as a giant Microsoft Project Gantt chart. This is close).
- Assorted timelines of art history, the history of computing, the internet, and microprocessors. Also Unix, GUIs and Mexico.
- Jorn Barger of Robot Wisdom has authored an astounding number of timelines (that often link into yet more resources), of history, computing, ideas, and so on, and has formalised the structure into a timelines format proposal.
- Timelines as collected by the Internet Time Group, which includes a pointer to the Long Now Foundation.
