As another member of that working group, I should add that we were
specifically focused on events of the last 10 years that have entered
the mass media conversation. Certainly there were (and continue to
be!) many important milestones that are not included on that timeline.
Aaron is right, of course, that we do not yet have definitive
historical texts. More and more we need them to identify trends and
patterns so that we can anticipate future problems, avoid repeating
past mistakes, and capitalize on strengths.
Toward this end, I am interested in working on a publicly-editable
timeline. Simile Timeline might be a good tool to get the ball
rolling ( http://simile.mit.edu/timeline/ ). If you are interested in
such a project, please email me off list and we can get down to biz.
Chris, perhaps you can share any artifacts you create from your presentation?
