This will not be an in depth tutorial. Rather an overview of what has been accomplished with EasyTimeline so far, and a vision for a very ambitious follow-up.
One year ago EasyTimeline was introduced on Mediawiki. Approx. 300 graphical timelines have been created since, and some 200 were translated for other wikipedias.
- Show some remarkable examples of existing timelines.
- Then very briefly talk about the Easytimeline syntax and show how a timeline is made step by step (don't worry, just three sheets)
- Announce the long awaited and now soon to be expected support for unicode and for external fonts.
- Promote a new project 'Grand Unified Timeline of Human History' (ambition level: high / target date: beyond soon)
