[TIPS] dipity timelines - and TimeTube

 
This post in Techcrunch (http://www.techcrunch.com/2008/05/09/timetube-the-timeline-that-youtube-should-built/) pointed me to this site. Dipity (who said "Dipity Do?") allows you to make very interesting timelines, like this one: http://www.dipity.com/user/sharonbetts/timeline/Iraq_War. Notice that you can view it in List form (The Listview Tab) and you can zoom in or out. Plus, you can embed it! First stop - check it out.
 
Then, the part that Techcrunch REALLY pointed me to is this: http://www.dipity.com/mashups/timetube. Timelines made up of YouTube videos. It looks like you can embed THIS timeline, too.
 
Timelines just got MUCH cooler!

Another really cool site for creating timelines is Mnemograph (http://mnemograph.com/). It's in beta (isn't every web 2.0 application in beta? :-) but it is very easy to use and can include photos from flickr, text from Wikipedia and video from YouTube.
