After a glorious weekend, the weather here in New York is grey and damp and cold and awful. It's Monday, and I cut myself while making breakfast and have an undignified bandage on my pinkie finger that's killing my productivity. This day, in short, is long.
So thank you to designer Luke Twyman, also known as Whitevinyl, who created HereIsToday, a little graphical representation of just how short the day really is. "Here is today," it says. Click that and it expands to show the place of today within the month of April. Then the entire year. Then the century. Eventually this expands and contracts to show the entire span of human history, then all of life, and eventually the universe. The universe is much older, it turns out, than today.
Check it out here.
Once science makes time travel a simple easy task for us all, I wonder how this info graphic will change?
When we develop worm whole traveling or multi dimension visiting, this should really put a new spin on the info graphic of history as well.
My current computer does not like the info graphic. It only displays a large black area. Perhaps this is my life in the great universal void of history!
Well, I the truth is, feel happy for no reason at all.
Thank you God!
Ignorance is bliss, lol!
On a scale of 66 million years I should not be able to see the yellow line. It should have disappeared somewhere around the millennium.
