Simple Timelines Put Today in Perspective Against the Whole of Human History

Time

wait but why has created a series of simple timelines that put time in perspective by illustrating what today looks like compared to last week, the last year, the 21st century, the past 30 years, the past 90 years, and so on. For more of the mend-bending timelines, head over to wait but why. Previously we posted about Here is Today, an interactive data visualization that puts a single day in perspective against the whole of history.
