We must apologize for decrease in number of posts lately — have no time, with that been said, we will publish only the best.
In my opinion, during the last month Guardian made this «best» — an interactive time-line of the revolutionary events in the Middle East.
Clicking on the picture will take you to an online version.
Following aspects deserve attention here:
- Unusual angle, it’s like you are turning the drum of time
- Summary for all countries and all the events from December 12 till 16th May
- Clear coding of the events
- Each icon is a link to the relevant article
It’s just the perspective is playing its vicious jokes and slightly distorts the link icons and lines of the country, that does not immediately makes clear to whom belongs the event if the icon is already crawling across the front (so for example, it is unclear who owns the blue globe in the lower right corner — Algeria? No! Egypt!)
