80 Days That Changed the World

Thanks to TechLearning I came across this thought-provoking site by TIME magazine – 80 Days That Changed the World. The site is basically an interactive timeline of key events from October 29, 1923 (Turkey Forced Westward) to January 29, 2002 (The Enemy is Defined). The site offers well-written synopses of the events along with a picture and a link to view TIME Magazine covers from the year being highlighted.

I am not sure how the days were chosen (probably the same way People chooses its 100 most beautiful people… very scientifically). As I looked through the days, it is obvious that the major effects of some of the events could have been predicted on the day they occurred (November 9, 1989) and some of them probably went unnoticed by the world at large (November 24, 1989).

Take a look. It is a nice stroll through history.
