I just had to blog this. I think flash is really useful but it's propietary and inaccessible on so many levels. So I love efforts to achieve flash like effects without using flash. I just just visited livingmatter.org and saw their timeline feature. Wow. Worked in chrome and firefox for me. Gets me excited about where the web is headed.
it's also about artificial life and computer simulation which are two important topics to me. So i couldn't help but promote the link love.
I didn't realise at first but it's actually an embeddable widget. Now I'm even more impressed cos I can embed it below.
